A Message from Management and Staff at Barnes Memorial Funeral Home.
We are all acutely aware that this is a time of great uncertainty with the rapid movement of the COVID-19 Virus regarding the health of our families and our communities.
The Barnes Family firm have always taken pride in the cleanliness of our facilities, but have recently stepped up disinfecting of our buildings to ensure that our guests are protected to the best of our ability and we will continue to be vigilant in not only cleanliness but also with crowd management.
While we understand people want to attend gatherings and personally offer their condolences to grieving families and to share memories with family members, we would like to suggest the following:
If you are unwell, please remain absent from large gatherings if at all possible. This is not only for the benefit of others but also yourself and your family.
If you believe you have been in contact with an infected person, we would suggest you not attend common areas where others are gathered and avoid spaces that create close proximity to other people.
Note: The Barnes Memorial Funeral Home website is accessible at any time. Our online presence is always available, where you are able to share your thoughts, condolences and memories with families while being cautious in this time of concern.
The Professional Body that governs our Profession has not ordered a closure or reduction of services at this time but rather a notice to all operators to use caution for all concerned. However, this too may be altered for the benefit of all. This truly is an hour by hour situation.
Should you have questions we are available by phone 24 hours a day by calling 905-655-3662.
We are Whitby's Celebration of Life Professionals.
If you are looking for information regarding celebration of life services, tribute receptions, memorial services, traditional funeral services, burial or cremation services, please feel free to browse through the information within our website or contact us, we are available by phone, by email or in person.
