Latest Update

Further to the government announcement on the 23rd March please find below the current guidelines regarding the funeral industry.

All funeral services must respect the current government requests for social distancing and the protection of high-risk groups.

Where possible, all funerals will be arranged over the phone or via other electronic means. If they are arranged in person, social distancing must be respected, this means:

  • Individuals must keep 2m apart
  • Wash hands frequently
  • If anyone coughs or sneezes then use a tissue and catch it / kill it / bin it
  • The number of people attending must be limited

Funerals cannot be arranged in person with anyone currently showing symptoms of the virus or who are self-isolating.

It is vital that funeral service employees, who are key workers, can remain healthy to continue to support bereaved families.

Chapel of Rest visits - these can go ahead at specific pre-arranged times and will be limited to people who live in the same household. At risk groups are strongly urged not to visit.
Funeral Service - the number of people attending the service will be limited in line with government advice on social distancing. The situation regarding specific locations is constantly under review and we will advise families on the current recommendations. During any service all social distancing guidelines must be respected.
Limousines - these can no longer be offered as a form of transport.
Charitable donations - all collections will be dealt with online.

We are working to stay on top of all of the current government advice to protect our staff and your families. We understand that at this already very difficult time certain guidelines will cause even more distress for which we are very sorry but they are totally out of our control. We are here for you to talk things through so please don’t hesitate to call, we are committed to help you through this very difficult time. We continue to offer our Bereavement Listening Service over the phone so please contact us if you are interested.
