Number of mourners allowed at funerals at Bramcote Crematorium to increase

09/07/20 - The number of mourners allowed to attend funerals at Bramcote Crematorium will increase next week following work to adapt its two chapels in line with social distancing measures.

From Monday 13th July, up to 30 mourners will be permitted in the Serenity Chapel and up to 17 in the Reflection Chapel.

Chair of the Bramcote Bereavement Services Joint Committee, Councillor Steve Carr said: “Broxtowe and Erewash Borough Councils have closely followed public health guidance around social distancing which unfortunately meant that the number of family and friends able to attend funerals was limited to 10.Councillor Steve Carr

This has been very difficult for those who are grieving so I am pleased that we are now able to safely increase the numbers permitted. I’d like to give my thanks to all those families for their patience and understanding at what is already a difficult time.

We will continue to monitor and review the situation in line with changing Government guidance.”

Those attending funerals must continue to follow social distancing measures whilst visiting the Crematorium. Anyone who has any of the symptoms of COVID-19 or lives with someone who has the symptoms should not attend.
