COVID-19 Update 16/12/2021 - Important Message from the Managing Director & Founder of Templeton Family Funerals

Dear Families,

From 16/12/2021 those attending a funeral service or burial will no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination, meaning caps no longer apply.

Please note that hospitality venues are still required to ask for proof of vaccination for any person over 18 years of age, therefore proof of vaccination is still required for all post-service functions.

For contact tracing purposes QR Scanning must be used. 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.

We encourage you to leave a tribute on your loved ones personal notice which will be placed on our website  this can also be linked to Facebook.

During these difficult times direct eye contact, loving words and a warm smile are as meaningful to the family as a traditional handshake or hug.

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
