It is with deep regret that we must comply with emergency legislation and close our cemetery to members of the public, unless a funeral is taking place.

We understand this will be a very distressing time for a lot of people who have lost loved ones, but we must comply to ensure the safety of everyone.

This is with immediate effect.
