Unattended Funerals at Huddersfield Crematorium

We have been notified today by our local authority regarding Huddersfield Crematorium:-
Funerals already planned can go ahead with 10 people attending.
Funerals Booked after today family will no longer be able to attend.

We would like to assure everyone that services with no more than 10 people can still take place in our chapel of rest. The eulogy can be recorded so anyone who can not attend the service can still watch it. The coffin will then be taken to the crematorium in the Hearse with our staff. Music can still be played at the crematorium and a live link used so you can watch the coffin as it enters the chapel.

Our nearest crematoriums still allowing immediate family to attend are Oldham and Grenoside Crematoriums. Should anyone have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact.

Covid 19 Update 1st April 2020

Since our last update services are changing yet again. Parkwood Crematorium, Elland will be moving to a direct cremation service meaning no one is allowed to attend. Huddersfield Crematorium are still allowing 10 people to attend seated on the chairs in the picture above to national guidelines, this may change in the near future.

Here at Pearsons, we are still able to provide a service in our chapel of rest with 10 people in attendance. The Eulogy can be recorded for friends and family who are not able to attend to watch at their own convenience. Limousines can still be used, providing the people travelling are all from the same household.

Coronavirus Update 18th March 2020

Once again we would like to reassure our families that our funeral services are carrying on as normal.

New guidelines received from the government and church bodies advise that all funeral services can now only take place either at the crematorium or graveside, however, services with small numbers of people attending can still take place in our chapel of rest.

Huddersfield Crematorium and Parkwood Crematorium are now offering live streaming of services for people who can not attend the service which has to be booked in advance of the service taking place.

At some point in the future once large gatherings are allowed to take place again, we shall be arranging some memorial services where everyone can attend to pay their respects.

Covid 19 March 16th Update

We would just like to reassure our families that our funeral services are carrying on as normal, until we receive further government instructions to do otherwise. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.

For those not wishing to attend funeral services, Parkwood Crematorium are now offering a free web broadcast and we are hoping that Huddersfield Crematorium will soon follow suit.
