To ensure social distancing is maintained to prevent the risk of spreading coronavirus, the following decisions have been taken:
- To restrict the maximum number of mourners to 10 that are allowed inside the chapel areas.
- To protect the health and wellbeing of all individuals in the chapel, we respectfully ask that social distancing be maintained at all times.
- Toilets and hand washing facilities will be available at each of the crematoria, along with hand sanitiser for mourners to use upon entering and exiting the chapel areas.
In recognition of the severe impact coronavirus continues to have on cremation and funeral services in the city, the council has taken the decision that bereavement service fees and charges will remain at 2019 prices until further notice.
