Bereavements are a very difficult time for families and friends but sadly, in the challenging times we are currently in with the COVID-19 pandemic, we must follow the Government’s measures and limit the number of people attending funerals.

This is for everyone’s safety to help stop the spread of the virus to ensure we all keep as healthy as possible.

If people do not comply with this, it may be necessary to cease having funeral services and that is not something we wish to do at what is a distressing time for families who are grieving.

We also reserve the right to seek Police assistance in cases where our advice is ignored.

We understand it is not an easy decision to limit the number of people attending to say goodbye but we are making a plea to everyone to do the right thing to protect others and our staff and to consider making plans to celebrate and remember loved ones through memorial services and other celebrations when the pandemic is over.
