Covid-19 Statement Updated 30th June

Coronavirus/ COVID-19

Funeral arrangements at present are still mostly being done by phone, email or video call. We expect this to be relaxed in the coming weeks. We will work with you and if you feel comfortable coming in to see us then we can accommodate this. It will be limited to a maximum of two family members for everyone’s safety. 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 are pleased to announce that our limousine is now available once again for hire to our families.

Fully fitted with a brand-new hygienic screen which separates our driver from the family, giving complete peace of mind. The limousine will be fully disinfected before each use, and antibac and gloves will be provided should families wish to use them.

We are happy for up to 4 members from the same household to travel together.

Unfortunately to protect the team at Armstrongs we cannot allow visits to the chapel for anyone in our care who is Covid +. This is in line with most companies and hospitals.

Also 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 July 6th the maximum number allowed at West Suffolk Crematorium is 30 close family and friends.

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
