Leicester, U.K. -- In the light of the ongoing lockdown restrictions, the Bay Tree Funeral Directors is positioning to provide all necessary funeral services and

supports. The facility will continue to operate as normal but will introduce some compulsory adjustments to its operations due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19)

pandemic. As a community institution, Bay Tree Funeral Directors is working diligently to ensure residents of Leicester can continue to access the funeral

services to say a final farewell to their loved ones. Understanding the need for some compassionate changes, the Bay Tree Funeral Directors is respectfully accommodating the following funeral restrictions.

Bay Tree Funeral Directors requires every funeral attendee to wear a facemask while inside the building. This is to reduce potential exposure to the coronavirus (Covid-19) and to minimize the risk of its spread to others. The face mask is to be worn by all persons until everyone exits the premises.

Every activity that requires blowing, like playing musical instruments, singing, chanting, etc., is prohibited for funeral services. Area restrictions are in force, and every activity that might transmit the infectious disease is forbidden. Your safety is the primary concern of Bay Tree Funeral Directors; however, everyone's safety is equally as important. That's why cooperation in maintaining this restriction is appreciated.

Bay Tree Funeral Directors is also requesting a limitation on the number of attendees. For everyone's protection, Bay Tree Funeral Directors will limit the number of attendees to not more than 30 persons. Ease of management and safety of attendees is considered when making its recommendations. In the light of present circumstances, we do not condone or wish for any breach of this protocol. But we recognize that such limitations will hinder many people's right to mourn and pay their last respects. We respect your right to attend the funeral services, and that's why webcasting live video of each ceremony is provided - to the extent possible.

Funeral restrictions are also extended to the time in the chapel. Visitation time, including entry and exit times, will be limited to 30-minutes. While this restriction limits your time with the deceased person one last time, Bay Tree Funeral Directors request that you cooperate to reduce the risk of the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Further, Bay Tree Funeral Directors will be restricting the collection of ashes from the crematorium during these unfortunate times. Families won't have to pay any charges for ash storage in the interim and for as long as required.

Finally, backfilling of graves by family members will be disallowed by the Leicester funeral home. Bay Tree Funeral Directors’ staff of professional undertakers will ensure prompt burial to ensure that there is minimum risk of any feelings of disrespect as you mourn the loss of your loved one. This courtesy is extended to anyone who needs it.

Funeral home staff will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that current funeral rules are implemented with compassion and respect. And we expect you as an individual to be responsible. It is also crucial that your friends and family adhere to these restrictions to keep ourselves safe. Every community needs to show its commitment to one another, and we hope that you strive to see the value in these restrictions.
