Ashes Retention Policy

In accordance with government restrictions members of the public are only permitted to leave their homes for a limited number of specific reasons. Whilst this includes specified individuals attending funerals, it does not provide for the collection of ashes or their final disposal.

Therefore, unless specific arrangements can be made to release the ashes in a manner which complies with the government’s requirements on social distancing, it is recommended that ashes should be retained at the crematorium until the current emergency is over.
