COVID-19 Precautions - Keeping Everyone Safe

 

We wish to reassure families that we will continue to lay their loved ones to rest with the same care and dignity as we always have. However, it is necessary for us to take certain precautions in order to prevent the risk of the possible spread of the virus to everyone who attends funerals at Hay Meadow Burial Ground, as well as our own family.

Visitors are also welcome to visit Hay Meadow Burial Ground as normal during daylight hours, but we ask that you please adhere to the current Government guidelines and we are still available to meet with families to answer questions or give guidance and support with funeral arrangements but, of course, we will be adhering to safe practices.

Please also be assured that burials are still allowed during this pandemic and cremation is certainly NOT compulsory. As we are approved members of The Association of Natural Burial Grounds, we are regularly updated with any changes to funeral regulations. If you are unsure of anything, please do not hesitate to contact us as we would be more than happy to help. 

 

Please do not visit Hay Meadow Burial Ground if you are feeling unwell or displaying any of the COVID-19 virus symptoms.

 

A full list of symptoms can be found on the NHS website:

Please note these measures are subject to change at any time in line with the Public Health and Government guidelines.

 

Take care and stay safe.
