Funeral Precautions surrounding Covid-19

A Funeral is a time when it is natural for many to greet and console with a hug, kiss or a handshake. We are now, more than ever, living in unprecedented times.

Following the announcements made last night by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, new measures concerning social distancing will take place from midnight, Wednesday 25th March. These include further restrictions for funeral services in Australia.

We are now required to limit attendance at funerals to no more than 10 persons. This excludes those persons whose presence is necessary to conduct the funeral (our staff, clergy & celebrants).

This is a heartbreaking, and challenging time for everyone, and we thank you for your understanding as we continue to adapt our services to these changes.

The health, safety and wellbeing the families we serve, our team, and our families at home, are of the utmost importance to us. We are committed to helping families farewell their loved ones respectfully and within the current and relevant Government advice and regulations.

Some other changes we have had to implement include;

    • It is essential that appointments be made.

We will not be able to see families immediately without an appointment. This is recommended for all physical interactions, including the delivery of items such as clothing, and completion of paperwork. Where possible, we will encourage arrangements be made via phone.

    • There will be times and days, when our offices will be unattended.

This highlights the need to make appointments for all physical interactions.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss any issues please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our phones will remain attended 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Stay safe,

Ben Steicke
