Covid-19 / Coronavirus Guidelines
'Death, Grief, and Funerals in the COVID Age' is a excellent resource if you would like some further reading. It has useful information for parents, children, healthcare workers, and those who are grieving or have family members they cannot be with at this time.
To protect you, your family, and our staff, all funeral arrangements can be conducted by e-mail and phone if you prefer (Zoom, Whatsapp, Facetime and Skype etc also possible). Most paperwork can be completed digitally if you have a printer. If not, we can post the necessary documents. If you prefer to meet face to face, we are happy to welcome you to our premises, hand sanitiser and face masks can be provided.
Each funeral location has different regulations regarding the number of mourners allowed to attend funerals. At the moment the maximum is around 30 people inside, and everyone attending must follow the current government social distancing guidelines. The elderly, vulnerable and anyone who has been in contact with someone with Covid-19 or who is showing symptoms (and has not yet finished their 14-day isolation period) is strongly advised not to attend.
We can arrange for live streaming or recording of the funeral for those unable to attend.
Our staff will need to ask you some questions about the circumstances in which the person has died, so that we are prepared with the adequate equipment and PPE.
We will still be able to help even if your family has been affected by Covid-19.
