The recommendations for good practice in regard to funerals are changing daily, but as at today the position is as follows:
We are continuing to carry out funerals as required. However, we are not currently able to meet clients in person, and instead are arranging funerals either by phone or skype.
You can contact us by phone on 01825 760601 or 01273 488121, and by Skype at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are not open to personal callers at the current time.
Church services have been suspended. Families may wish to consider holding a memorial service at a later date when restrictions are lifted.
Please note that mourners are restricted to immediate family – Spouse/Partner; Parents/carers; Brothers/Sisters; Children; and their partners – and limited to a maximum of 10 people.
No-one who is self-isolating should attend a funeral.
At the funeral service, those living within the same household may sit together, but a distance of at least 2 metres must be kept between all other people.
At the Crematorium, the coffin will be carried in before the mourners enter the chapel. The curtains will close at the end of every service. It is not permitted for mourners to touch or kiss the coffin, or to place flowers upon it. (Floral tributes delivered to our office in advance will still be allowed, although please be aware there is a shortage of flowers at present and therefore it may not be possible to source specific blooms).
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.
We are not able to provide our limousine service until further notice.
If you have any queries do please get in touch and we will be glad to help you.
We will continue to update this information as and when new legislation and recommendations are issued.
