✅Cemeteries – From Sunday, there will be pedestrian ONLY access at all our Cemeteries. The Council has put these additional restrictions in place to protect the health and safety of staff, mourners and the wider public and allow us to implement social distancing within our cemeteries.
We would urge the public to follow Government guidelines in relation to staying at home and urge the public to consider limiting visits to our cemeteries. Whilst we understand that families want to visit the graves of loved ones, the volume of traffic within our cemeteries was causing us concern and was making social distancing difficult.
We are continuing to work closely with the Churches and undertakers in relation to funeral planning and cemetery arrangements and appreciate your co-operation and understanding at this time.
