In line with emergency legislation, our cemeteries are closed to the public, sculptors and contractors. Access is only allowed for funeral corteges.
We recognise this is a distressing time for anyone who has lost a loved one. These measures are being put in place to protect staff and also to protect members of the public.
As we continue to review our service delivery in response to COVID-19, we have introduced changes to burial arrangements at our cemeteries.
