In addition to the maximum capacity attending the service there may also be:
A person conducting the service, and other people who are necessary for the preparation and conduct of the service.
Facemasks are mandatory for attendees at Funeral Services.
To comply with this amendment, The Palmdale Group advises:
Recording customer information digitally by using QR codes or other electronic means is mandatory in NSW for funerals and memorial services. It is also mandatory for gatherings held after funerals and memorial services.
All people attending chapel services, burials, cremations, interments, ash placements and catered functions or wakes will be required to check in using the QR Codes at these locations.
Check-in via the QR Code:
When an attendee arrives at the funeral service, they hover their phone camera over the code on display. The smartphone reads the QR code and the check in page appears.
The attendee enters their contact details.
A staff member may check the successful sign-in on the attendee’s phone.
Funeral Directors and families can assist by advising people attending the funeral of the QR code check in process and assisting them to check in when they arrive.
Customers without a mobile phone will be asked to record their details on the Record of Attendance form provided at the service.
*We offer complimentary recording of the service and live streaming to our chapels.
In accordance with the framework, a record must be kept of all attendees names and contact details for each funeral gathering applies.
