Covid Guidance

UPDATED GUIDANCE
Amended 20 December 2021

Both the Woodland and the Western cemeteries at Cheshunt are open to visitors.

At a time of rising infections, the JJBS and the Cemetery request that face masks are worn at all services, and that gatherings are restricted to 50 people. This is so that we can continue to protect our rabbis, staff and vulnerable people who may not have been able to have the vaccination or for whom the vaccination is ineffective.

For the time-being, stone-setting services will be held at graveside, and funerals will be outside unless for very small gatherings.

We expect everyone to strictly follow the government rules on self-isolation and quarantine when either symptomatic with COVID-19 symptoms, having had a positive test, or having recently been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Any person in one of these categories should not visit the cemetery in any circumstances.

We thank you for your cooperation and patience during these challenging times.

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

Please phone us on 020 8989 5252 for advice.
