COVID-19 Update 07/12/2020 - Important Message from the Managing Director & Founder of Templeton Family Funerals

Dear Families,

Over the weekend, our Premier shared some changes to restrictions and set Victoria up for a safe summer and holiday season.

We are pleased to announce as from Monday December 7th, 2020 - There are no limits on the number of people that can attend a funeral, subject of one person per two-square metres.

From this week, face masks will no longer be required when coming on-site to attend a funeral gathering or function provided a distance of 1.5 metres between people is maintained. We remind you of the requirement for every Victorian to always carry a face mask.

Guests will be required to sign in to all funeral services & appointments by scanning the provided QR code with their phone. This is in line with mandatory requirements across Victoria.

Sanitiser is available at all our venues and we ask if you could please sanitise on entry & exit.

We are offering recording & live streaming of services where possible and we certainly can arrange a memorial service at a later date.

All appointments at our office must be confirmed prior to your arrival, maximum (2) visitors per appointment. Whether your wishes are for a direct cremation, burial or a service, we are always available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to look after your family and loved one.

We encourage you to visit our website to read more about what we offer, or to browse our range of flowers, coffins, and our service gallery.

Please stay safe, support each other and feel free to reach out to us with any of your queries or concerns. 03) 9706 9555

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time.

Yours sincerely,

Managing Director & Founder

Ellese Templeton
