The COVID-19 pandemic has effected every part of our lives, with restrictions placed on us and new considerations to how we go about our lives.
The size of any funeral is now restricted by the Church or Crematorium at which the service will take place, as of May 17th. Each service location has completed it's own risk assessment and come to a decision on the safe number of mourners that can be accommodated. Factors including air flow, social distance, movements within each building will have an impact on this number.
An NHS Test and Trace document needs to be completed by the arranging client and kept for 3 weeks after the service, we will assist with this.
At the North Devon Crematorium the current restrictions imposed on us are:
However for those unable to attend for whatever reason:
Burials can take place, with graveside services being permitted in all cemeteries and churchyards. At the graveside service we can still have a full service, with a minister or celebrant of your choice, service sheets, readings & music. We have our own P.A. system, so those speaking can be heard, and music can be played.
Most churches are now open again for services. However it is the individual church's decision whether they will open again yet or not.
Each church has varying factors to consider as to whether or not to open and the maximum number of mourners that can be in attendance.
Where a church is open, the maximum number of mourners will be set by the individual church. Singing is also not permitted within any church.
Once the restrictions currently placed upon us, have been eased sufficiently we will able to assist the arrangement of memorial services to be held at your chosen location. We will arrange all aspects of this for you, as we would have done already for the funeral service.
The information above is accurate as of 10th May 2021, and is subject to change at short notice, as guidelines and regulation changes for the government, local authority, or local crematoria and churches.
