Covid-19 Statement Updated 26th March

Coronavirus/ COVID-19

Further to the Prime Ministers announcement of nationwide measures, as of Tuesday 24th March we no longer will be able to see families face to face in our office. While funeral arrangements will obviously have to still go ahead, these will be done by phone, email or video call. We will be working hard in the office, to ensure that anyone entrusted to us still receives the highest levels of care that you have come to expect from Armstrongs.

We are still available 24/7 for our families and those needing us. If you need to speak to us, need our assistance, or need to arrange a funeral please call us on 01284 723889 and we can go from there.

We will have to abide by the rules laid down by the government, local crematoria and cemeteries regarding numbers allowed at funerals, and the format that funerals may have to take.

As of March 25th the maximum number allowed at West Suffolk Crematorium is 10 close family members.

Please understand that this is completely out of our control and is not something that we find easy to do.

Thank you for your understanding.

Nick Armstrong
