Coronavirus (COVID-19) latest information and advice

Haycombe Cemetery

Haycombe is currently accessible to those attending a funeral, up to the following maximum numbers:

  • 26 in the Crematorium Chapel
  • 30 in the Top (Burial) Chapel
  • 30 at Graveside Services for burial
  • 12 at scatterings or interments or cremated remains - where numbers exceed 6 face masks are required

Face coverings must be worn in all inside spaces. These must be worn for the duration of the time spent in either of our chapels, and may only be removed if speaking at the lectern as part of the funeral service.

We hope to increase these numbers further as soon as we can. However, while social distancing remains in place, we believe this to be the safest maximum capacity we can offer without endangering public safety.

A new high-definition streaming system has been installed so that families and friends who are unable to attend the funeral of their loved one due to the coronavirus restrictions can still view the service. The live webcasts will allow people in self-isolation, or those who cannot travel, to pay their respects.

If you need to meet with crematorium staff, please call in advance on 01225 39 60 20 to book an appointment.

The site is otherwise closed to visitors.
