The health crisis due to the Coronavirus has presented many challenges to what we expect in everyday aspects of our lives and so it is with funerals.
Funeral Services have continued throughout the crisis and for many bereaved families this has been achieved in a rewarding and satisfactory manner.
Two of the biggest changes to arranging funerals have been the number of people that may attend the service and the provision of refreshments afterwards. Currently, both of these factors remain restricted and continue to limit options to some bereaved families below their requirements.
We are looking to the future and offering options to plan a Memorial Service in such circumstances where the bereaved family would like the opportunity to invite a larger group of friends and family and to continue the remembrance by circulating afterwards over refreshments. We anticipate the ability to hold such events will become easier as the year progresses, and we are already booking dates subject of course to government restrictions at that time.
In many ways, a Memorial Service is the same as a Funeral Service and for this reason we suggest you browse the pages of our web site to see the options available in our Ceremony Halls at Harbour View and at Christchurch.
In addition, we have published a brochure discussing Memorial Services. A printed copy can be sent to you upon request or you can click this link to download a PDF copy of the brochure.
