Coronavirus (COVID-19) Cemeteries updates

All three of our chapels (Braintree, Bocking and Witham) are now closed for services until further notice in line with the government guidance on social distancing. Our cemeteries do remain open. The Cemeteries team are happy to offer a memorial service for the deceased at a later date, if required, for family and friends. You can contact the team at [email protected] for queries.

We will continue to offer graveside services and committals, in line with the guidance on social distancing, so following guidance from the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICMM), we will be asking only close family to attend. This does not include Ministers, Conductors and Bearers.


Braintree District Council provides and manages four Cemeteries within the District; these are Bocking, Braintree, Halstead and Witham.
