Face coverings

From 8 August 2020, it will be mandatory for guests to wear a face covering when attending a funeral or wedding or civil partnership ceremony.

We ask that you wear a face covering when entering any Council building.

There are exemptions. See government guidance on face coverings.

Cemeteries and the crematorium

Cemeteries and the crematorium are open.

Due to government guidance on social distancing, the Roll of Remembrance Chapel and Flower Chapel at South Shields Crematorium are closed until further notice.

Any stonemason wishing to work in South Tyneside's cemeteries must be registered with the National Association of Memorial Masons (NAMM) or The British Register of Accredited Memorial Masons (BRAMM).

This is a list of the local companies who are registered. They are listed alphabetically, not in any order of merit.
