We know that COVID has presented many challenges for families in all facets of life, and many people have struggled with the restrictions, including those on funeral numbers.

please note the following restrictions.

 

Arrangement of funeral services

If you’re seeking to arrange a funeral, please email us at enquiries@waltercarter.com.au or call us on (02) 9389 3499.

 

Funeral Services

Under the latest State Government guidelines:

  • Masks will be compulsory indoors from 24 December
  • QR Code check in is still mandatory on all funeral services, regardless of vaccination status.

In the case of the Walter Carter Funerals gathering space, we can now accommodate up to 32 people. Hand sanitiser and face masks are available.

 

Care and attention

At Walter Carter Funerals, we are committed to delivering a funeral that best honours the life of loved ones with dignity, and we always strive to ensure the family’s wishes are met.

However, we also need to ensure we operate within the regulations set by the Government, and consider the safety of all who attend the funeral, as well as the wider community.

To do so, we will need to ensure all attendees sign in using the ServiceNSW QR Code prior to entering the funeral.

Please be assured that all the Walter Carter Funerals team that will be managing the funeral are fully vaccinated and will practice and encourage the Government’s advice of mask wearing and social distancing.

Also be assured that we at Walter Carter Funerals respect the utmost trust and responsibility that you have placed in us to deliver the very best in service and outcomes for our clients and their friends and family.

We will continue to monitor the advice and easing of restrictions, and keep you informed on any future changes or circumstances that may impact our business.

Coping with grief during COVID-19

The spread of the coronavirus has taken a huge emotional toll on the community.

It’s changed the way we communicate with our friends and colleagues. It’s changed how we fill our leisure time. And it’s changed how – and if – we can spend time with our families.

Importantly, it’s changed how we experience grief. However, by being aware of your emotional, social and spiritual health, and deliberately focusing on your own self-care, you can mitigate the effects of this ‘grief pandemic’.
