Coronavirus guidance for Cemetery and Crematorium

Due to a burst water main, we have had to turn off the water supply for some areas of the Cemetery. The remainder of the taps in the rest of the Cemetery and Garden of Remembrance are working and you can still access water in the memorial chapel. We are working to restore the water supply as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused. You can view our coronavirus guidance page.

The government is removing the remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading coronavirus.

This includes:

  • getting vaccinated
  • letting fresh air in if meeting indoors
  • wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
  • getting tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and staying at home if positive

You can visit GOV.UK for more information on national coronavirus guidance.

We will continue to ventilate, sanitise and clean the chapel areas.

We can now offer the following capacity in the chapels:

  • 30 seats in the North Chapel
  • 100 seats in the South Chapel

There is standing room in the Foyer for:

  • 8 people in the North Chapel
  • 25 people in the South Chapel
