Details about Ingleton Cemetery.

As the Government's Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines change, we will review the restrictions in place at the Crematorium and Cemetery and the amount of mourners we can accommodate within the chapel for cremation and burial services.

The capacity within the chapel is currently 15 attendees in order to comply with the governments 2 metre social distancing. We are further permitting 15 attendees outside the chapel. Allowing 30 attendees to a service.  

We kindly ask that you still adhere to guidance regarding social distancing, please do not attend if you are showing any signs of Covid 19.

Our webcasting service, which is available up to 28 days after the service, is available for all chapel services, please contact the family and their Funeral Director for more information.

Our Book of Remembrance Chapel is open as usual. 

We sincerely apologise for any distress this will cause however, we have a duty of care to everyone attending our services and the staff working at the crematorium.

From January 2021, the amount of mourners attending a commemorative event, such as scattering/interment of ashes or a wake, has been decreased to six persons, all of whom must social distance correctly and follow the correct legislation. Families visiting their loved ones' resting places within our cemeteries must abide by the 'rule of six' regulations. 

Government guidance confirms that people living within a very high category area are able to travel to a funeral within a different Covid alert level.
