Information on the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic

Burials and cremations can still go ahead as planned but the Government has issued guidance to help keep people safe at funerals.

Please speak to your funeral director to find out what options are available to you.

Cemetery Office:

The Cemetery Office is closed to the public during this emergency but we are happy to help with family history and other enquiries if you email us at Cemetery.Lane@ipswich.gov.uk 

Our venues

The Old Cemetery Church and West Chapel at the Crematorium remain open for services, but attendance numbers will be restricted to allow for social distancing. Funeral directors will advise on the restrictions in place for each venue.

We understand how difficult the restrictions are for wider family and friends, so, bereaved families can now book a webcast of a funeral service live on the internet so more people can take part. It also gives people who did actually attend an opportunity to see the service again.

To find out more and to see what other digital services are available ask your Funeral Director.

Those who have symptoms of Covid-19 must not attend and must stay at home.

Stringent cleaning measures are in place and venues are thoroughly cleaned after each service.

All public toilets situated in the cemetery grounds are closed. The toilet in the West Chapel remains open for attendees.

Visiting memorials

People are still able to visit cemeteries to lay flowers at memorials but please adhere to social distancing rules and keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household.

Visit www.ipswich.gov.uk/coronavirus for information on the latest government and health advice, as well as changes to Council services.
