Coleshill Town Council is working hard to keep everything running smoothly in Coleshill Cemetery; the latest Government Guidelines state that:
Funerals are allowed with strict limits on attendance, and must only take place in COVID-19 secure venues or in public outdoor spaces unless in exceptional circumstances.
Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people. Linked religious, belief-based or commemorative events, such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 6 people in attendance. Anyone working is not counted in these limits. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.
Therefore graveside services and scatterings at Coleshill Cemetery can still continue.
We please ask that people attending the cemetery for services or to visit graves follow the up-to-date Government Guidelines and maintain, at all times, 2m apart from anyone not living in their household or bubble.
Please also ensure you remain 2m apart from any members of staff.
The cemetery remains open but, in order to keep our staff as safe as possible, they will not be opening and closing the gates to our cemetery gates on a daily basis, at the usual times. They will, however, be on hand when there are burials or scatterings taking place. There is still some limited parking available on the drive towards the tennis club.
