Mandatory digital check-in for Funerals from 23rd November 2020

The NSW government has announced that from Monday, 23 November 2020, the recording of customer information by using digital means eg. QR codes, will be mandatory in NSW for funerals, memorial services and after service functions.

Guests attending these events at any of our sites will be required to use their mobile phone to check in using our QR Code which is on prominent display at our offices, chapels and condolence lounge facilities.  

Attendees without a mobile phone will be asked to record their contact details on a attendance register provided at the event by either the funeral director or cemetery.

In order to avoid unnecessary delays at the time of service, we would kindly ask Funeral Directors and families to inform attendees in advance of this check in requirement.

Funeral attendee restrictions from 1st December 2020
