**NEW FUNERAL HOME GUIDANCE**

Effective June 15, 2020, New Funeral Home Guidance has been released, based upon recommendations from the 
NH Funeral Directors Association and the Governor's Re-Opening Task Force. In addition to continual, thorough facility sanitation  
and training for our staff, the following measures are being implemented effective immediately: 

  • Funeral Service attendees should be notified/informed that if they have symptoms of COVID-19, they should NOT attend the funeral services for the protection of other attendees and staff.
  • Funeral Service attendees should wear face coverings at all times when inside the funeral establishment.
  • The number of attendees inside a funeral establishment will be limited to 50% or less of an establishment's permitted occupancy
  • based on New Hampshire's Building & Fire Code.
  • Any waiting/receiving lines inside and outside will have demarcations spacing attendees at least 6 feet apart.
  • Seating must be arranged at least 6 feet apart with space to allow people to move through without coming into close contact with others.
  • Establish one-way traffic patterns to promote social distancing.
  • Close contact with others (e.g. hugging or hand-shaking) is discouraged. Condolences should be provided from a distance of at least 6 feet.
  • No food, snacks or drinks are allowed in funeral homes or reception areas.
  • Visitations will be limited to a period of 2 hours in order to allow for appropriate facility sanitizing and cleaning as prescribed by the CDC.

Cremation


While a casket burial is the most common method of handling of remains in the United States, cremation is increasingly selected because it can be less expensive and allows for the memorial service to be held at a more convenient time in the future when relatives and friends can come together.

A funeral service need not be any different whether you choose a cremation or a burial. One of the advantages of cremation is that it provides increased flexibility as to when you make your arrangements. You might, for example, have a funeral service before the cremation, a memorial service after the cremation with the urn present, or a committal service at the final disposition of cremated remains. Funeral or memorial services can be held in a place of worship, a funeral home or in a crematory chapel.

For a final resting place, cremated remains are usually placed in an urn. The urn may then be buried, placed in a mausoleum or columbarium, retained by a family member or interred in a special urn garden that many cemeteries provide. The remains may also be scattered on public or private property, according to state law. It is important to check local regulations.

Whatever you choose is a personal decision and there are many options available to fit your needs. We’ll be happy to go over these with you and answer any questions you may have.
