27 March 2020Our gates are closed... other than for burials
📣📣 Sadly I have to inform everyone that as of 1pm yesterday (we’ve just learnt this) Penlow is closed to the public other than for burials or ashes interments. 📣📣
Legislation was passed yesterday by Government in response to the global pandemic:
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020
Further restrictions and closures during the emergency period
5. (8) A person who is responsible for a crematorium or burial ground must ensure that, during the emergency period, the crematorium is closed to members of the public, except for funerals or burials.
▪️Therefore we will be taking steps today to close the site until further notice. ▪️
We will update if anything changes as soon as we know.
Please stay safe everyone and rest assured that we will continue to look after your loved ones as we always have 💚
