COVID – Precautionary Measures for Old Park Meadow Natural Burial Ground:
Firstly, we wish to reassure people that we continue to lay their loved ones to rest with the same care and dignity as always.
We do however wish to take all necessary precautions to prevent the risk of possible spread of the virus to families, their friends, the funeral directors and our own staff.
We are therefore limiting numbers for services in Old Park Lodge to work within social distancing guidelines, please call us to discuss this in more detail.
When services/burials take place:
For attendance at a graveside for a burial or ash interment social distancing is still required.
Larger memorial services and celebrations of life may be arranged in Old Park Lodge at a later date when we are advised it is safe to do so.
We recommend people self-distance themselves from others with a minimum 2 metres between each person. There should be no contact between staff and attendees including handshaking and hugging.
We will clean and sanitise our premises, furniture and facilities regularly to reduce any risk of infection.
You are more than welcome to visit Old Park Meadow as usual during daylight hours but please adhere to current Government Guidelines at the time of your visit. We are here Monday to Friday 9.30am to 5pm. We are still able to see families but ask that you give us a call beforehand and of course we will be adhering to the current guidelines.
Please do not visit Old Park Meadow if you feel unwell with any of the COVID-19 virus symptoms.
These measures are subject to change at any time in line with Public Health and Government guidelines.
