The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused a number of changes in the community and this includes funeral services. A time of death is inevitably a time of trial and stress for family and friends.
At Alfred James we are here to help, guide and advise at this difficult time. The funeral service is an important element in acknowledging a family’s loss and grief. In our current climate, Alfred James is still able to arrange and conduct funerals. However, we have made some changes to comply with the current restrictions in place.
We have reduced the number of people allowed inside our funeral chapels. We ask that if you are unwell that you do not attend the funeral service. We are working with churches, cemeteries and crematoria to safely and appropriately conduct funeral services.
We can arrange recording of the funeral service that can be made available to those who cannot attend. In some locations we can arrange live-streaming of the funeral service.
At Alfred James, each funeral is arranged to meet the needs and wishes of the deceased’s family and friends. This has always been the case and continues to be our approach when conducting a funeral.
If you have any questions, need assistance or would like to discuss this further, please contact one of our trained staff on 8272 8555. We are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
