OOur funeral directors will guide you every step of the way.

Caring for you & your loved ones since 1843

Here to help and support the Community. 

Funerals and places of worship are limited to 100 people including all officiants and staff, subject to the one person per four square metre rule and a COVID-Safe business registration. All attendees (excluding those from the same household), are required to adhere to the 4 sq. metre rule.

From Monday, 23 November 2020, recording customer information digitally by using QR codes or other electronic means will be mandatory in NSW for funerals and memorial services. It is also mandatory for gatherings held after funerals and memorial services.

This information will be used for contact tracing where necessary, which helps stop the spread of COVID-19.

To comply with the NSW Government requirement, Creightons Funeral Service will assist with the use of QR codes at services.

All people attending chapel services, burials, cremations, interments, ash placements and catered functions or wakes will be required to check in using the QR Codes at service locations.

Check-in information remains confidential and will only be used for the purpose of COVID-19 contact tracing.

Please ensure you have the Service NSW app on your phone to enable scanning of the QR Code. Via the Link below

Check-in via the QR Code:

When an attendee arrives at the funeral service, they hover their phone camera over the code on display. The smartphone reads the QR code and the check in page appears.

The attendee enters their contact details.

A staff member may check the successful sign-in on the attendee’s phone.

Funeral Directors and families can assist by advising people attending the funeral of the QR code check in process and assisting them to check in when they arrive.

Check-in Manually

Customers without a mobile phone will be asked to record their details on the Record of Attendance form provided at the service.

All funeral arrangements and services will be carried out with the utmost respect and professionalism for the deceased and their bereaved family. Chapel capacities are determined by the 1.5m ruling.

To comply with this amendment, The Palmdale Group advises:

Funeral and Memorial Services held in our chapels will have the following numbers allowable due to 4 sq metre rule. Social distancing is still to be strictly adhered to.
Our current chapel capacities are as follows to comply with social distancing:

Rose Chapel – 25 mourners

Hillside Chapel – 50 mourners

Greenway Chapel – 40 mourners

St Patricks of Nulkaba Chapel – 25 mourners

Erina Heights – 40 mourners

(Staff and officiants are inclusive in the above numbers for all chapels)

In accordance with the framework, a record must be kept of all attendees names and contact details for each funeral gathering still applies.

Victorian residents –  Please refer to restrictions here.

Live streaming is available at our Creightons Erina Heights Chapel and Greenway Chapel & Memorial Park.

Recording of all chapel services will continue to be available, with a complimentary USB provided at the conclusion of the service. We would also like to advise that telephone interviews are available.
