Covid-19 update: Increased Attendees & Garden Of Remembrance Re-opening

Covid-19 update: Increase in Attendee Numbers.

With the Scottish Government announcing further relaxations to the lockdown restrictions today, we have revisited the safety measures we implemented at the start of the pandemic. We are pleased to announce that from tomorrow, Friday 19 June, we will allow a maximum of 20 mourners to attend funeral services in the Old Chapel with social distancing continuing to be observed.

 

Our external sound speakers will also be available in order that those who are unable to attend may listen to the service outside the Old Chapel. We ask for your continued cooperation in ensuring that safety protocols are adhered to at all times.

The walled Garden of Remembrance will reopen for visitors from tomorrow and they are welcome to leave a small fresh floral tribute in the garden, view a memorial tablet or pass a few minutes in contemplation. We ask visitors to be considerate of all who might wish to attend the memorial garden, please wait patiently and, importantly, keep a safe social distance from other visitors. At this time, the Book of Remembrance may be viewed through the memorial arcade window. We hope to provide access to the memorial arcade in the near future and we envisage this initially being on an appointment only basis. This can be arranged by calling the office on 0141 271 4830.

 

Our website will be updated as further restrictions are lifted and service provision returns to full capacity in the coming weeks and months.

 

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and please all take care and stay well.
