Please be advised that due to the current COVID-19 regulations, we have implemented several changes at Ipswich Cemeteries.
All visitors to our facilities now need to sign in electronically via a smart device. QR Codes are situated at each access door and the confirmation screen will need to be shown to staff prior to entry.
From 6:00pm on Monday, 11th January 2021 a maximum of 100 mourners will be able to attend funeral services held both outdoors and indoors, as long as the venue is of sufficient size and layout (e.g. spacing of chairs) to allow for social distancing to be implemented, including 1.5 metres between attendees where possible. This number is inclusive of a celebrant/clergy and staff required for the running of the service. In line with the one person per four square metres rule, our Warrill Chapel can comfortably accommodate 50 mourners in addition to funeral staff. We also offer Live Streaming of all services held within our chapel for a nominal fee.
Please note that face masks must be worn at all times whilst inside the chapel. Queensland Health also recommends people wear a mask when outdoors if they are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people.
Our Blue Wren Tea-Room is currently closed for after service catering. We will review the situation if restrictions are eased later this month.
For in-person enquiries, we ask that only two people enter our office at a time. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone our office on 07-5464 3145 with any other queries.
We thank you for your understanding.
The Ipswich Cemeteries Team.
