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 various locations including each access door and the confirmation screen will need to be shown to staff prior to entry.
From 1:00am on Friday, 22nd January 2021 a maximum of 200 people 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 two square metres rule, our Warrill Chapel can comfortably accommodate 110 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 under the current COVID-19 restrictions the wearing of face masks is no longer mandatory for indoor venues. Queensland Health does recommend people wear a face mask whenever they are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people.
Our Blue Wren Tea-Room has re-opened for catering bookings for a minimum of 30 people and a maximum, of 75 people.
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.
