Our response to coronavirus (COVID-19)
Our customers, colleagues and communities are at the heart of what we do. Therefore in light of the developing Covid-19 situation, we will be posting information on what action we are taking based upon recommendations by the Government and Public Health England.
In line with recent government updates, we will be restricting capacity to 30 mourners in the chapel.
