Information for visitors
PUBLIC HEALTH, ENGLAND
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020
In compliance with the above regulations now in force, we regret that the crematorium and its grounds are now closed to the general public until further notice.
Only those attending funerals may enter the crematorium and this is restricted to not more than 10 mourners per funeral, all of whom must be direct relatives* of the deceased.
Please do not attend the crematorium if you are showing any symptoms or if you are on the list of ‘vulnerable groups’ in respect of COVID-19 (please refer to Public Health England guidance).
Subject to the consent of the applicant, we offer a webcasting option for those who cannot physically attend the service. Whilst there is normally a charge of £95, we are currently providing this service free of charge in light of these extreme circumstances. Please contact the funeral director for more information on this.
Those attending services at the crematorium are asked to be mindful of the government guidance on social distancing, including maintaining a 2 metre gap from anyone other than those who live in the same household as you and, as difficult as the circumstances of a funeral make this, avoid the usual social gestures such as shaking hands, kissing and hugging.
Please note that all service and hymn books have been removed from the chapel.
We apologise for any additional distress these necessary measures may cause to the bereaved.
*direct relatives are defined here as:
- Children (and partners)
We're conscious of the additional distress the current situation is placing on the bereaved at what is already a very difficult time for them, but please be assured that whilst we have had to make changes, we will not compromise on the compassionate support for the bereaved and the dignified care afforded to the deceased.
