Due to technical issues, the revised date for the completion of the improvement works has been extended until the 30th June. We very much regret any additional inconvenience this may cause.

The areas directly affected will be fenced off in order to ensure public safety, however, this is not expected to restrict access to memorials.

Our response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our customers, colleagues and communities are at the heart of what we do. Therefore in light of the developing Covid-19 situation, we will be posting information on what action we are taking based upon recommendations by the Government.

In line with recent government updates and current restrictions, we have limited our chapel capacity to 30 mourners.

During the current situation, we appreciate that it may be difficult to decide on a fitting tribute for your loved ones. We know that finding a special way for you to remember and mourn is extremely important, and we understand that you may be thinking about what options are available to you at this time.

We’d like to reassure you that our trained colleagues are still available to assist you in finding your loved ones’ lasting tribute.
