Pond redevelopment at Gedling Crematorium

Gedling Crematorium has been part of ongoing discussions and meetings with regards to redeveloping the pond area in our memorial grounds. Following on from this, we are delighted to announce that the redevelopment of this area has been approved and started on Monday 1st November 2021.  

The expected time frame of the works is approximately 6/7 weeks from the start date of Monday 1st November and a completion date of Friday 17th December. During this time, the pond area will be corned off however, the grounds and all memorials will be accessible throughout our usual opening times. The office staff will also be working closely with the construction team who will be on site between Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.  

We would also like to assure all visitors that the works will cause no disruption to any chapel services that will be taking place here at Gedling.

We would like to thank all visitors to Gedling Crematorium for their patience and co-operation in regards to these works and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  Should any questions arise please do not hesitate to contact the crematorium office.

 

Latest Covid-19 guidelines (29th November 2021)

 

To protect the safety and wellbeing of the bereaved, our teams and funeral director colleagues, we are closely monitoring government guidelines in England and continuing to maintain practices to ensure everyone’s safety:

 

  • Whilst masks and face coverings are not a legal requirement, we actively encourage all visitors to wear them in our indoor public spaces, should they wish to do so.
  • We continue to offer hand sanitiser in and around our buildings.

  • We continue to ensure that where possible, we have doors and windows open to allow for good airflow throughout our buildings.

  • We ensure that regular cleaning is undertaken in between services to multi-touch points (e.g. door handles, lecterns, catafalques, backs of pews)

  • We carry out a deep clean of the chapel at the end of every working day so that our chapels are ready for the following day.

  • We continue to offer the use of the NHS Track and Trace posters to enable all visitors to ‘check-in’ at our premises, however, this is not a legal requirement for people to use it.

  • Singing is once again allowed in our chapels.

  • We offer the witness charging of coffins as normal.

  • We allow for curtains to remain open and for mourners to walk up to the coffin to touch/place flowers.

  • We welcome donations and collections to be carried out by the Funeral Directors using their own donation boxes or encourage families to make use of online charitable giving sites.

 

Additionally, in line with government guidelines:

  • Mourners are asked to take lateral flow test before attending a funeral and self-isolate straight away if they tested positive.

  • Mourners traveling from abroad are asked to follow Covid-19 international travel requirements.
