Important Notices

Lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in England

To protect the safety and wellbeing of the bereaved, our teams and funeral director colleagues, we are closely monitoring government guidelines in England.

We are pleased to confirm that from Monday 19th July 2021 there is no longer a requirement for social distancing or face coverings. Our chapels, offices, waiting rooms and associated external buildings are now fully open. However, we are continuing to maintain many of the good practices established throughout the pandemic as follows:

  • Whilst masks are no longer a legal requirement, we actively encourage all visitors to wear them in our indoor public spaces, should they wish to do so.

  • We continue to offer hand sanitiser in and around our buildings.

  • We continue to ensure that where possible, we have doors and windows open to allow for good airflow throughout our buildings.

  • We ensure that regular cleaning is undertaken in between services to multi-touch points (e.g. door handles, lecterns, catafalques, backs of pews)

  • We carry out a deep clean of the chapel at the end of every working day so that our chapels are ready for the following day.

  • We continue to offer the use of the NHS Track and Trace posters to enable all visitors to ‘check-in’ at our premises, however, this is not a legal requirement for people to use it.

  • Singing is once again allowed in our chapels.

  • We offer the witness charging of coffins as normal.

  • We allow for curtains to remain open and for mourners to walk up to the coffin to touch/place flowers.

  • We welcome donations and collections to be carried out by the Funeral Directors using their own donation boxes or encourage families to make use of online charitable giving sites.

Memorials update – 28 July 2021

Due to events beyond our control resulting from significantly delayed shipments from overseas, memorial orders are currently being received later than expected. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We are endeavouring to limit any disruption to a minimum.

If you are considering purchasing a memorial, we encourage you to place your order at the earliest opportunity to ensure its installation as early as possible.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any enquiries, please contact the Crematorium Office.

 


Welcome to West Lancashire Crematorium

Set in the heart of the countryside on the edge of Burscough, this new cemetery and crematorium provides a natural place for families of West Lancashire to hold a dignified service of their choice.

Nestling in the Lancashire countryside, the building has been especially designed to blend into its natural surroundings, offering a place of peace and seclusion, so important for a funeral.

Over 40 acres has been dedicated to finally provide a new crematorium and burial service for the people of West Lancashire. This ensures that the bereaved have the space and time to organise the individual funeral that they want.
