Dear Gardens families

It is with great regret that we are going to have to temporarily close the Memorial Gardens to members of the public from the end of today (Monday 30th March).

The Secretary of State made a regulation under the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) last week which says that: “a person responsible for a crematorium or burial ground must ensure that, during this emergency period, the crematorium or burial ground is closed to members of the public.”

You may have noticed that the Crematorium is also closing its grounds, except for when it has to hold funerals.

It has been noticeable over the past week that many of you have been following the Government’s ‘stay at home’ order and realise that, much as you may want to visit your loved one’s grave, it doesn’t fall within the Government’s list of ‘essential reasons to leave the house’. Thank you for following the rules and staying safe.

If you need to contact us, you can message us on Facebook, email memgardens@hotmail.com or call 01329 828250 and we’ll do our best to help.
