At David W Bull Funeral Director we continue to follow advice provided by the Department of Health and we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to all client families, employees and our communities.
Please be assured that our business as usual practices continue to meet and
care for our client families needs.
We know it’s been difficult, but with your assistance we are pleased to confirm the following restrictions have been updated as at 13/05/2020:
For Funeral Services/Gatherings-Social distancing directives still apply.
The restrictions currently require at least four square metres per person.
Funerals may now be attended by a
maximum of 20 people for indoor services,
and 30 people for outdoor services,
not including the funeral director and essential staff.
Attendance numbers for both
indoor and outdoor services cannot be combined.
Requirement to record attendee details
As part of the above, the Victorian government has also put in place
a requirement that the names and contact details of all attendees at
services, burials, and funeral functions need to be recorded.
(These details will only be kept for 28 days.)
We request your assistance by proactively informing your family and friends of the above. We also thank our families and communities for compiling and also their understanding at such a difficult and sad time.
As this situation is constantly changing please check for updated funeral arrangements as we will endeavour to update any changes as soon as possible.
We also remind you that we can record all funeral services with a copy provided to the family. This allows families to make multiple copies, distribute as required and allows family/friends to view at their discretion. We can also arrange the option of webcasting the funeral service.
If you are unable to attend a funeral service you can use our website to send a condolence message to the family.
As a precautionary measure, we also request that you please remind families and friends if they have travelled internationally over the last 14 days or are experiencing symptoms similar to cold or flu that they do not attend funeral gatherings.
We will continue to actively monitor the developments as the situation evolves and are committed to keeping our community informed.
