Local COVID alert level: high

Colchester is currently defined as a 'high risk' coronavirus alert level. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will take action to minimise disruption and keep residents and visitors safe.

Coronavirus: updates, advice and guidance

Created with Lunacy


To protect both the bereaved and our staff during the coronavirus outbreak, we have made important changes to how we deliver some of our bereavement services.
  • A face covering must be worn by all family and friends attending a funeral in Colchester Crematorium chapel, all funeral directors’ staff, and all ministers and celebrants.
  • Families should restrict attendance to close friends and family to keep the number of people in the chapel to a maximum of 20.
  • The Book of Remembrance and the Prayer Room remain closed until further notice.
