COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

This is affecting us all at work and at home. We’re working hard to keep services running and will focus our efforts on the most critical elements. In doing so disruption to many services is likely.

Registering a death

We are only offering a telephone service to register a death.

Canley Garden cemetery and crematorium

Canley Garden cemetery and crematorium will be closed to the public except for planned funerals where five mourners from the immediate family can attend. We know this will be difficult for some, but it’s vital we help limit the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Revised arrangements for funerals and cremations

In light of the current situation around COVID-19 and Government advice on social distancing, Coventry City Council is bringing in restrictions on the number of people allowed to attend burials and cremations.

There is now a limit of five family members allowed to attend services.

We apologise for any distress this may cause at what we know is a difficult time for family members, however, the decision has been taken in line with the latest Government guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect family members, clergy, funeral directors and Council staff.

Family members are allowed to ‘live stream’ the service via tablets or mobile phones.
