COVID-19

Updated June 16, 2020

In the greatest efforts to protect your family and ours, at Steadman Brothers Funeral Chapels, we are taking all precautions necessary to prevent the spread of Covid-19. At the funeral home we have a regimented cleaning and disinfecting schedule. Our doors are locked during business hours but we are available 24 hours a day by phone or email. Any funeral or pre-arrangements can be made in person following all physical and social-distancing protocol, by phone and/or email.

It is now more than ever that we recognize the value of a visitation, funeral or celebration of life that involves our family, friends and neighbours. These services are now limited to a MAXIMUM OF 30% OF THE BUILDING CAPACITY (up to approximately 50 PEOPLE **conditions apply) AT THE FUNERAL HOME AND A MAXIMUM OF 50 PEOPLE ATTENDING A GRAVESIDE SERVICE AT THE CEMETERY (by order of the Bereavement Authority of Ontario). We will make every effort to give your family and friends an opportunity to grieve the loss of a loved one. This includes staggered viewing times for family, multiple services and online streaming of services.

Anyone attending visitations or services is still required to maintain a 2m distance from those not in their household or social circle of 10, WEARING A FACEMASK IS MANDATORY, use our hand sanitizing stations regularly and avoid contact with others. Visitors in line will be spaced 2m apart and the line may extend into the parking lot where that spacing is still in force and people may be asked to wait in their vehicles. We will also be planning services for a later date when we are all able to grieve together.

Please know that we are still here to serve you with the same compassion and care our family has provided to the families of Lambton County for the last 114 years.

Please keep yourself and your family safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Mark and Adam Steadman
Owners/Funeral Directors
