Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice

Cemeteries and the crematorium

*Updated 10 August

From Saturday 8 August it is compulsory by law for everyone attending an indoor funeral service to wear a face covering.

The most recent guidance from the Scottish Government is that all burial and cremation services should be restricted to a maximum number of 20 people in attendance with physical distancing in place. This applies only to funeral services, other gatherings such as wakes are still subject to the rules which apply to all other indoor and outdoor gatherings.

From Wednesday 15 July our crematorium will re-open to members of the public for services such as viewing the book of remembrance or for collection of ashes.

Information and changes are being updated on a regular basis and we will advise of any relevant updates as we get them.

Streaming service

A streaming option is now available at our Crematorium so families and friends can watch the funeral service of their loved one. A secure login and password is required.

Grounds maintenance

Grass cutting at cemeteries will be introduced in a reduced capacity from week commencing 18 May 2020.
