In line with recent government guidance from 8 August, face coverings are required to be worn in all our Crematoria by Mourners, Funeral Directors, their staff and also Ministers and celebrants.
This doesn’t apply to children under the age of 11.
Ministers and Celebrants should wear face coverings while liaising with chapel staff, mourners before and after the service (whilst indoors) but may be removed during the service if they are more than 2 metres away from mourners.
Our staff will also be required to wear face coverings in the chapels when managing/co-ordinating the chapel services.
There is a no singing policy.
