Weeley Crematorium

Office and Funeral Directors Reception - Christmas Eve

Please note that the crematorium and office will be closed on Christmas Eve this year.  Please leave a voicemail or send an email instead.  This does not affect the grounds and Book of Remembrance which will still be open and available to view. For further details visit our Christmas Services web page.

Thank you for your understanding. The gardens at Weeley Crematorium and room of remembrance are open for people to visit memorials, please follow social distancing while doing so.

From 10 December 2021 it is a legal requirement for mourners, funeral directors and officiants to wear a face covering within a crematorium or burial ground chapel. A face covering is not required if they are exempt or have a reasonable excuse, this includes a mourner who becomes distressed and needs to remove their face covering to wipe their eyes, nose or face.

The maximum number of mourners which can be accommodated within the chapel is dependent upon the combination of households and bubbles looking to attend, as a distance of two metres needs to be maintained between groups not in a bubble or household together. Please contact your funeral director or, call or email the crematorium team to discuss attendance arrangements further.

Government guidance states that people can travel to attend a funeral or related event, or visit a burial ground or remembrance garden. Please also consider Government guidance that being permitted to do so and being appropriate to do so, are different considerations.


Weeley Crematorium is operated by Tendring District Council and is part of the Council's Operational Services Department.
