New regulations for face coverings at funerals

11th September 2020

Tovey Bros would like to politely remind families that mourners attending funerals at all crematoria, churches, chapels and indoor service venues across Wales will be required to wear face coverings from Monday 14 September. These regulations will apply not just in the chapel, but also to the cloisters and flower display areas, which are classed as indoors.

The number of invited mourners allowed to attend services at Langstone Vale Crematorium Gwent Crematorium remain the same.

We would ask visitors to the Tovey Bros Chapel of Rest to telephone the office in advance to make an appointment and to wear face coverings inside the premises. This follows guidelines from the Welsh Government which has announced it will be mandatory to wear masks in all indoor public spaces.

The only exceptions to this are for children under 12 or individuals with an exemption illness, such as:

  • They are not able to put on or wear a face covering because of a physical or mental illness, or because of a disability or impairment
  • They are accompanying somebody who relies on lip reading where they need to communicate; or
  • They are escaping from a threat or danger and don’t have a face covering

We recommend that to avoid any awkwardness, these mourners download an exemption badge from the government website. The two-metre social distancing rule remains in place and must be adhered to at all times inside and outside.

Tovey Bros can be contacted 24/7 on 01633 266848. Thank you in advance for your consideration in this matter and for your continued support throughout these unprecedented times.
