Arranging Funerals: 

  • Funerals are to be arranged over the phone or via email as much as is practicably possible 

  • We will collect clothes and certificates from clients houses rather then having you travel to us

  • Thanet Crematorium only permits 15 people to attend Cremation Services 

  • 10 people only in cemetery chapels (Ramsgate and Margate)

  • Thanet Crematorium offers a Webcast service (subject to availability) so it can be viewed from home, this is currently still charged for but we will be offering a reduced fee where we can. 

  • Services can be recorded by the crematorium to be watched by those who cant attend. There is a charge for this service set by the crematorium. 

  • Church of England has closed churches, services only at the crematorium or graveside. 

  • In some cases we can arrange for the cremation or burial and plan to hold a memorial service later in the year when possible. 

Cremated Remains: 

  • Burials of cremated remains can still take place, it is advised however to leave this for now and carry it out at the end of the year. 

Viewings/ Chapel Visits:

  • At the moment advise on viewing someone who has passed away from COVID-19 is mixed but industry bodies are recommending that viewing does NOT take place. You can still visit our chapel with the coffin sealed.

  • People who have passed away and have NOT had the infection will be able to have chapel visits as per our normal practice. 

Measures we are taking:

  • We are providing hand sanitizer in our reception for use on entry and exit 

  • All staff are being re-trained in P.P.E. and Infection Control Management 

  • Our arrangement rooms are being disinfected after use

  • Staff are not shaking hands with clients 

  • Some members of staff have been sent home due to the government restrictions on age and health conditions.
