Important information concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19)

Following the Government guidance on social distancing in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Rugby Borough Council and Daventry District Council have taken the difficult decision to restrict attendance at Rainsbrook Crematorium funeral services.

From 1 March 2021, following a review of the restrictions, the maximum number of mourners permitted to attend services in the Avon Room was increased to 30, providing mourners can be seated in pairs from the same household.

A maximum number of eight mourners are permitted to attend services in the Drayton Room.

All other restrictions remain in place.


The restrictions aim to safeguard the health of visitors and minimise the risk to staff in order for the crematorium to remain operational.

In addition, immediate family attending funeral services have been requested to follow the hygiene advice issued by the Government, particularly in relation to the washing of hands.

Any immediate family members with symptoms of the coronavirus (COVID-19) should not attend funeral services and follow the latest NHS guidance with regards to self-isolation.

Both Rugby Borough Council and Daventry District Council appreciate the impact of this decision on both the friends and family of loved ones, but stress it has been taken in accordance with advice issued by both the Government and our professional associations.

Please note, the bereavement services team has now cancelled all non-essential, face-to-face meetings with family members until further notice.

Please contact the team by telephone, email or post, using the details listed under 'Contact us.'
