Attending funerals

This guidance has been updated to reflect changes in the new government response to living with coronavirus (COVID-19)  There is no longer a legal requirement for people with COVID-19 to self-isolate, however if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, you are advised to stay at home, avoid contact with other people, and follow the guidance for people with COVID-19.

Both Chapel at Agecroft and Peel Green Crematoria have now returned to maximum seating capacity. 

Wearing a face covering is now not a requirement. If you do however feel more comfortable wearing a face covering, then please feel free to wear one.

We continue to do our best to provide the most dignified services to bereaved families in Salford and the wider community and will continue to take the following steps.

We have the following guidance in place for funeral services:

  • Hand sanitiser stations will remain available and all attendees are advised to continue keeping to the one way systems.
  • Both venues will be ventilated as much as possible with regular cleaning continuing in between services. Service times will continue to be limited to a maximum of 30 minutes wherever possible.
  • We aim to ensure all mourners can be seated in the chapel areas. We will work with funeral directors and families to provide additional seating if required, so families can mourn their loved one in a safe and dignified environment.
  • Outside speakers at both venues will continue to be available for all services in case all available seating inside the chapel is in use, or some people would prefer to be outside.
  • For mourners who are unable to attend, or would like to view the service in their own homes, webcasting and recording of individual services continues to be available.
