Covid-19 Pandemic Guidelines & Information
Covid-19 has created a new way of doing things for most of us. It is unfortunate that this pandemic has temporarily taken away how families, friends and communities as a whole can grieve the loss of a loved one.
We are not able to do what we want and need to do under the current restrictions. We are unable to hold any format of public visitations or receptions as they are considered social events.
Many churches are unable to meet the public health guidelines to accommodate a service and our chapel facilities are experiencing the same difficulties. What we can offer is a gathering of 5 (five) immediate family members and then provide on-line streaming for the other family members and community to gather "virtually".
Currently, the Public Health regulations permit, with no exceptions: 10 (ten) family members to attend a service in our chapel, or 75 people outdoors physically distanced (face coverings must be worn) - plus one officiant.
Our professional staff of Directors will be able to explain these options in depth when meeting for arrangements.
Currently when entering our building, masks or protective coverings must be worn as well as respecting the 6' distancing requirements. Maximum number of family members for an arrangement conference is 4 (four).
THE NEW GERMANY OFFICE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. PHONE IS ANSWERED 24 HRS AND STAFF ARE AVAILABLE TO SERVE YOU. 902-644-3656.
C.F. Sweeny's Funeral Home Ltd.
35 York Street - our new, all inclusive public facility
Commemorating 103 years of Dedicated Service
We are appreciative to have been providing professional services, guidance and assistance to families who are in need during the most difficult event in life, since 1917. As we move into a evolving society where needs and service requirements change, we want to make sure that Sweeny's Funeral Home continues to provide the service that our families have come to expect. We work with each family making sure that their wishes and desires are met and that we are able to give back to our families - memories to cherish - when it comes to their reflection back on the memorialization of their loved one.
The Value of Live Streaming
Live Streaming a memorial service is about uniting all who brought value to someone’s life. It allows people to pay their respects and show support regardless of life’s obstacles such as finances, travel, age, or health.
Live streaming can bring new moments to light and renew old memories as guests are encouraged to share their own photos and stories – which we keep and store for you.
From connections so small that no one knew about them to the closest connections of all, everyone should have the opportunity to pay respects to a lost loved one, a dear friend, a colleague, or an acquaintance.
To preserve the moments and memories, Forget Me Not Ceremonies will give you the opportunity to put all these treasures into a photobook … to keep and cherish. Please ask our knowledgeable Directors about this service and how we can make sure all your families and friends can be part of their event - virtually!
Our Commitment to You
When you need help and guidance during a loss in your family, you'll find the staff at Sweeny's Funeral Homes to be compassionate and responsive to your needs. At a time when emotions can make it difficult to deal with all the issues you're facing, you will have peace of mind that our licensed and support staff strive on completing every detail with professionalism, respect and dignity.
As a locally owned, private company, we take pride in the personalized services we're able to offer to those families of which we are honoured to assist. Whether you've planned in detail or find yourself unprepared, with chapels in Bridgewater and New Germany, we stand ready to be your source of help.
Please feel free to browse our pages to learn more about pre-planning a funeral and grief support, as well as the traditional funeral and cremation services that we have to offer. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at anytime, we are available by phone or e-mail, or drop by the office in person. We are always here to help.
We understand that it is not always possible to attend a service or visitation in person, so we encourage you to use our partner Forget Me Not Ceremonies for on-line streaming or our beautifully designed interactive online tributes website to pay your respects. Leave a condolence, share a memory, light a candle and more!
Thank you for visiting us on-line.
