Closure of Cemeteries and Burial Service Guidance due to Covid-19

Closure of Cemeteries and Burial Service Guidance due to Covid-19

All Cemeteries in the Borough are closed (effective 30.03.20).  Cemeteries will only be open for burial services.

This decision was taken to comply with new legislation introduced by the Northern Ireland Assembly to curb the spread of Covid-19.  We are aware that this is a very significant and stringent measure, which will be upsetting and hugely impactful on many in our community.  As a Council, we hope that difficult actions like this will serve to protect the people of our community during the days and weeks ahead.
