CEMETERY REOPENS
New Legislation Allows Cemeteries to Reopen

Following new guidance, issued by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management, I am delighted to inform you we will be reopening our cemetery to the public from today.

Last week emergency legislation was brought in by Central Government instructing all burial grounds and crematoriums to be closed, as part of a host of new measures brought in relating to the Coronavirus pandemic.

In line with this legislation Councils closed cemeteries to the public, except for burials.

However, after seeking clarification about the legislation new guidance has been released and Hemyock Parish Council is pleased it can now safely reopen the cemetery, in line with the updated rules.

Anyone visiting must abide by social distancing rules and no one should be attending the cemeteries if they are showing any symptoms of illness.

CEMETERY CLOSED

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.
