Following the lifting of most Coronavirus restrictions from 19th July, the position regarding funerals is set out below.
You can contact us by phone on 01825 760601 or 01273 488121
We are open to personal callers but if possible, please telephone to make an appointment.
Funerals can go ahead without restrictions on the numbers of attendees – however, you should continue to consider the risks of close contact with others, particularly if you are clinically extremely vulnerable or not yet fully vaccinated.
Churches and Crematoria can accommodate their usual full capacity numbers, but are requesting that mourners continue to wear face coverings inside the venues in line with Government advice.
At the funeral service, the coffin will generally be carried in before the mourners enter the chapel. It is requested that mourners do not touch or kiss the coffin.
Singing will be permitted if the family are comfortable with this, but please be aware of the risks of transmission.
Crematorium can generally offer a webcast of the funeral to allow family and friends to watch the service either live, or at a later time. We will arrange this for you, and advise you of the crematorium fees depending on the options chosen.
Wakes may take place in hospitality venues or private homes and gardens without restriction.
If you have any queries do please get in touch and we will be glad to help you.
