We understand this is a concerning and confusing time for everyone. Right now, we are continuing to provide cremation services as we always do. We have implemented contingency plans that will ensure we are able to sustain caring for families and the deceased in the coming months.
We are working closely with the government and the wider funeral sector to ensure that we deliver the services that are needed, whilst providing the necessary protection for both you and our colleagues. The situation is changing daily, and we will adapt accordingly, but right now these are the measures that we have put in place to ensure the wellbeing of everyone.
We already operate with the highest levels of hygiene and safety standards across all of our locations. However, we have implemented additional cleaning routines and procedures in line with guidance from Public Health England to ensure the safety of our staff and all visitors.

- If you have a funeral plan - nothing changes with how it is used or what it covers. There may be some limitations imposed in some areas of the service due to us adhering to the latest government guidelines. Please call the number provided with your funeral plan documents and you will be given the appropriate guidance for you.
- We are doing all that we can to ensure we can continue to deliver our full service. However, there will be some areas where restrictions based upon government guidelines may be in place. For example, the crematoria are now limiting services to 10 mourners. We will provide you with clear guidance on what is possible during any arrangements.
We are experienced and prepared to take care of people who have died under all circumstances, including with COVID-19. At all times we will look after your loved one in a caring and dignified manner.
Our website is full of advice and guidance and we have created a dedicated area with frequently asked questions specifically around the current situation that you may find useful.
