Jewish Joint Burial Society – JJBS

Jewish Funerals

Providing funeral services for Jewish people and non-Jewish partners
for Reform, Masorti, Liberal and Independent Communities in England.

12TH April 2021


We are unable, with our Prayer Hall closed, and the limited space we have available, to be able to allow larger numbers of mourners and families, in order to maintain the 2 metre rule between people, from our current limit of 15 people for a funeral or stone setting. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to be able to open our hall, when larger numbers will be welcome.


We ask for your cooperation as these restrictions will be enforced. Please remain within your family groups and these groups should not mingle.


All visitors are required to wear masks or other face coverings at all times. We expect everyone to follow government rules on self-isolation and quarantine when either having Covid-19 symptoms, a positive test or having been in contact with someone who has tested positive. Any person within these guidelines should not visit the cemeteries. Please refrain from approaching our staff save for the 2 metre distancing.


The Office and Gathering Hall at the Woodland remain closed. Toilets are open and Hand Sanitisers are available for your use. The buggy is not in operation.


We thank you for your cooperation and patience.

The cemetery is now open, however visitors are requested to phone in advance.
