Parndon Cemetery and Crematorium re-opens
Covid-19 / Tue 21st Apr 2020 at 11:42am
THE WESTERLEA Group that run Parndon Cemetery and Crematorium has confirmed that it has now re-opened for those who wish to pay their respects.
A statement on the website is as follows.
DURING this unprecedented time, our dedicated teams are working tirelessly to deliver funeral services as normally and as safely as possible to give your loved ones the dignity and respect they deserve.
We pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional service that is uniquely personal, a standard we remain passionate about during this challenging time.
To protect the safety and wellbeing of the bereaved, our teams and funeral director colleagues, we are closely following government guidelines. Currently attendance for funeral services at our sites is restricted to immediate family members only, with up to a maximum of 10 mourners per service.
For those not able to attend, including the vulnerable or elderly, we are able to arrange webcasting services, so friends and families can be a part of the service without leaving the safety of their home and we encourage you to speak with your funeral director to arrange this.
Those who do attend funeral services can be assured that we have the appropriate hygiene facilities in place and are helping attendees adhere to social distancing guidance.
During this extraordinary time that we are all facing, we strive to work in close partnership with our local funeral director colleagues and families to ensure that your loved one gets the best possible funeral service whilst protecting the health and wellbeing of bereaved families and colleagues.
We understand that people want to visit our grounds and these are currently open for those who wish to tend to a grave or pay respects at a loved one’s memorial.
We are encouraging all of our visitors to adhere to the social distancing guidelines, follow hygiene precautions and to limit their time on our grounds to protect the safety of themselves and others.
Our offices remain closed to visitors, but should you wish to contact us, please call your local crematorium or cemetery.
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.
