Covid-19 Update November 2021
Although we have had nothing official from the government – as of yet, we have had guidance from the ICCM advising the following;
The Department of Health and Social Care, and the UK Health and Security Agency (formerly Public Health England) updated their guidance on funeral and commemorative events during the coronavirus pandemic on 23 November 2021. The revised guidance aligns with wider guidance that LFD tests are now taken before a high risk activity rather than twice weekly as before. Advice is given for those that are exempt from isolation to take an LFD test before attending a funeral, as if they are a contact or in quarantine this might change their decision about whether to attend the funeral or not.
Although this is guidance only at present, we feel that it should be adhered to in an effort to protect your and our staff and members of the public. We also will be requesting that masks are re-introduced for those who can wear them. Again this is guidance and not mandatory as of yet.
As of Monday 19th July 2021 the number of mourners allowed to attend local crematoriums are as follows;
Aldershot Park Crematorium – Maximum 80 attendees seated, some scope to have additional mourners standing outside with speakers. Face masks are encouraged to be worn within the chapel.
Guildford Crematorium – Maximum 134 attendees seated. Face masks are encouraged to be worn within the chapel.
Easthampstead Park Crematorium – Maximum 150 attendees in Wellington Chapel and 200 in Braccan. This is combined seating and standing. Face masks are encouraged to be worn within the chapel.
Woking Crematorium – Maximum 80 attendees seated. Face masks are encouraged to be worn within the chapel.
Evelyn’s Funerals is very proud to be recommended by the Good Funeral Guide for a fifth successive year in 2020.
