We are all experiencing an unprecedented time due to COVID-19.

Our family life, work and everyday routines have significantly changed and it is a very confusing and frightening time.


We want you to know that should you need us in the coming weeks and months, whether Covid-19 related or not, we will still endeavour to provide a professional and dignified service to you and your loved ones.


While funerals have been excluded from the ban on events taking place (announced 23rd March) and funeral homes remain open, it is absolutely vital that funeral services abide by the objectives set out in the Government’s guidance and do not create an unnecessary risk of transmitting COVID-19 between those in attendance.


Following this guidance we are now seeing big changes in how funerals are arranged and carried out.


Until further notice:-

  • We are limiting face to face meetings within our premises to 1 – 2 people and by appointment only.
  • We will now arrange funerals over the telephone wherever possible.
  • We are unable to provide limousines.
  • There are to be no services held in churches.
  • Most crematoria are now saying that only immediate family may attend.
  • No hymns or songs to be sung at services.
  • No donations will be collected at services (please ask for details on alternative ways to donate).
  • Social distancing in all ceremonies to be strictly adhered to.


We are still available 24 hours a day and will remain so unless any of us show any symptoms.

We will keep you updated on what to do in that eventuality.


We understand that all of these changes make an already difficult time even harder and we will do everything we can to help families say goodbye.

In the months to come, we can help you plan a memorial service in order to carry out the wishes that have been unfulfilled at this time.


It is, however, vitally important we respect Government guidance for social distancing and we all must act responsibly to help stop the spread of COVID-19.


Stay safe everyone x
