Bassetlaw District Council said cemereries at Hannah Park, Manton in Worksop along with Retford Cemetery would close as part of widespread national restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
A spokesperson said: “We understand this may be upsetting for some people and appreciate your understanding during this difficult time.
“This follows a directive from the Local Government Association and associated Health Protection Regulations 2020 which came in to force on the 26 March and apply to any person who is responsible for a crematorium or burial ground including local authorities and private providers.”
The Government has also issued updated advice for families who have lost a loved one at this time.
This includes a restriction on the number of mourners to a maximum of 12 people, while maintaining a safe distance.
