The Book Room and waiting rooms will remain closed until further notice.
Please carefully observe social distancing.
We know this will be difficult for some, but it’s vital we help limit the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
We thank people for their patience and understanding.
Revised arrangements for funerals and cremations
In light of the current situation around COVID-19 and Government advice on social distancing, Coventry City Council has restrictions on the number of people allowed to attend burials and cremations.
Cremation or memorial service in either of the chapels
Until 4 July: A maximum of 16 mourners, whilst allowing for social distancing. This assumes that the funeral director places the coffin in the chapel and withdraws prior to the mourners entering, leaving only the family and celebrant for the service.
From 4 July: A maximum of 30 mourners to attend and be seated in the chapels for both cremation and burial services.
Graveside service / internment until 4 July – Number directly around the grave remains limited to 6. However an appropriate area in the wider cemetery is made available for up to 20 additional mourners to socially distance.
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.
