We have received clear guidance from Government and the Local Government Association that crematoria and cemeteries should now be closed to the public, except for funerals or burials. The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Regulations 2020 came in to force on the 26 March 2020 and apply to any person who is responsible for a crematorium or burial ground including local authorities and private providers.

We realise that this is a sensitive time for many and this decision will be upsetting to some but we feel the Parish Council has no choice but to follow the guidelines.
