The Chapel of Remembrance at Teesside Crematorium will be closed from the morning of Saturday, March 21.
The move is in line with the latest advice from the Government and Public Health England as part of widespread measures to slow the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Flowers will be taken out of the Chapel and placed on stands outside the building.
The Teesside Crematorium Online Book of Remembrance can be viewed online at any time.
The closure will remain in place until further notice.
