Even before this crisis we maintained health and safety measures designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses. Now this includes COVID-19. Our protocols cover everything from handwashing hygiene, cleaning product specifications, ventilation, equipment and common area cleaning procedures. Even though our office remains open, where possible please call first for an appointment at 1 (246) 426-4170.
Lyndhurst has always implemented the latest technologies for the convenience of families we serve. We have made live streaming and recording of services available to families as an option (complimentary during this time) and the ability to support families via obituaries on our website.
Funerals are important. Recognizing loss is a human instinct and it is important to recognize that we must facilitate beginning the healing process. Please make an extra effort to support those that have lost a loved one during this unusual time. Your support is more important than ever with the added stress of these extraordinary circumstances.

Every situation can and will be accommodated to ensure the arrangements for the care of your loved one and ensure your wishes are followed.
