In consideration of the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mount Pleasant Cemetery (London) Inc. continues to take steps to reduce risk to our staff, the families we serve, and our guests.
We take the safety of our community and the families we serve very seriously and we have adapted our daily health and safety protocols to reflect this. We are taking extra precautions to limit exposure, our staff will be cleaning on an ongoing basis, and we will be following all government recommended guidelines (including social distancing). Please understand we are implementing these safety measures to ensure we can continue to serve you in your time of need.
Some functions will be offered in a modified capacity, while others are temporarily suspended. Given the evolving nature of the situation this information is subject to change.
