Permitted numbers in the chapel are 200, and a maximum 40 standing mourners in the foyer. Because of the lack of ventilation (non-ventilated area) in the foyer, during continued warm spells, the foyer may be closed, and mourners encouraged to listen to the service being convey via the outside speakers.
For larger services, we do not restrict mourners in outdoor areas and burial services which take place outside are unlimited numbers.
Our Crematorium office is open, however this is by appointment only. The Book of Remembrance room is open to the general public and includes weekends.
While wearing a face covering will become a personal choice, people are asked to adopt safer behaviours and help reduce the risk of infection. Precautions remain particularly important to those who are at higher risk if they catch COVID-19, although due to advances in vaccination and therapeutics, this group is now better protected and therefore the decision will be to ask everyone to continue to wear a face covering, staff and visitors in indoor public spaces (self-responsibility and best practice guidance to be encouraged and welcomed).
The Help Project is a service that supports residents over the age of 50 who have experienced the loss of a loved one. The service (a partnership between the council, Age UK Lindsey and Citizens Advice North Lincolnshire) aims to prevent social isolation by creating a friendly support network.
As part of the service, a team member will work with a recently bereaved resident to create a tailored support plan containing practical advice and guidance. The plan may include information on what financial assistance is available, ways to stay connected and active while practicing government guidance on social distancing, and more.
The Help Project information pack [PDF, 316KB] has more information. You can also contact Citizens Advice North Lincolnshire on firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01724 296958.
We understand this is a very difficult time for families, and we will do all we can to support you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01724 747555 or email at email@example.com.
