COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Our staff have been instructed to observe social distancing in line with Public Health Wales guidance. While we understand that you will want to attend funerals, we would ask that you please stay at home if you can. Cremation services can be streamed over the internet, please ask the funeral director looking after the arrangements for more information. If you do decide to attend, please practice social distancing in the chapel or at the graveside by distancing yourselves by 2 meters (or 2 chairs).


Our staff are available by telephone and can offer any advice you may need. Alternatively, use the form on the contact page.


Cardiff Cemeteries

Cardiff cemeteries are temporarily closed to the public, unless you are attending a funeral. Gates at Cathays Cemetery, Western Cemetery and Pantmawr Cemetery will be locked at all times, with limited access, for a maximum of ten immediate family members, only granted when funerals and burials are taking place on site.


Access to Thornhill Cemetery and Crematorium will also be restricted. In line with Welsh Government legislation the Crematorium itself will be closed to the wider public, with the exception of a maximum of 10 immediate family members attending funerals and burials.  No public access will be allowed to other areas of the site, such as the gardens, memorials or Book of Remembrance.
