Please be advised that due to the current COVID-19 regulations, we have implemented several changes at Ipswich Cemeteries.
As of Tuesday, 16th June 2020 a maximum of 100 mourners can 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 with room outside for an additional 10 mourners. We also offer complimentary Live Streaming of all services held within our chapel.
Our Blue Wren Tea-Room has re-opened for after service catering. In line with the current COVID-19 rulings we can’t currently offer buffets or communal drink stations of any kind. All patrons will be served individually and must remain seated whilst eating and drinking. We have introduced tables to comply and can currently accommodate 50 patrons under the one person per two square metres rule.
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.
