~ COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT ~

Please be advised that due to current SA Government regulations, Funeral Services are currently restricted to a maximum of 150 people in attendance. This will result in Funeral Services being private and invitation only.

Please understand, if you are not personally invited to attend a Funeral Service, you must not attend, either inside or outside of the venue. Families have the very difficult decision to make, on which family members are able to attend, and it may cause further distress if well intended, but uninvited mourners arrive.

If you are attending a Funeral Service, please remember to bring your own flower. Please be mindful that social distancing rules still apply and all funeral attendees will be required to wear a mask, sign in using the QR Code or give their contact details for tracing purposes, as per Government Requirements.

Your understanding is appreciated at this time.
