Coronavirus information for funerals, burials and interments of cremated remains

Arranging a funeral, burial or cremation is a difficult thing to do at any time, and under the current circumstances even more so. We are working to minimise the impact of the coronavirus on bereavement services.

Our cemeteries remain open and we have introduced the following temporary changes: 

  • Our council offices are closed to the public. For all enquiries please telephone our bereavement service team on 01530 454595
  • Attendance at funerals is now restricted to immediate family only. Immediate family are classed as:
    • Spouse/partner
    • Parent/ carers
    • Brothers/sisters
    • Children and partners
  • The number of the above is restricted to eight for any burial interments at the cemetery
  • The number of the above is restricted to two for cremated remains interments at the cemetery.
  • We are happy to give guidance on this matter please do not hesitate to contact us on 01530 454595
  • Until further notice you will not be able to pre-purchase a grave plot.
  • We are not currently offering appointments to meet a member of staff to select, locate a grave or memorial.
  • You may not currently scatter cremated remains of loved ones with family and friends present.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation we will update you of any further changes.
