COVID-19: Funeral Guidance Updated

June 25, 2021 by No Comments | Category Uncategorized

On Tuesday 22nd June, we published a blog outlining upcoming relaxation of funeral restrictions.

We have now updated our guidance to reflect these changes:

Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for funeral services

Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for funeral directors

Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for burial and cremation authorities

A change to regulations that will allow members from more than one household to carry the coffin indoors and outdoors at a funeral service and to take a cord at the graveside will come into effect from Monday 28th June.

If you wish to relay funeral services via speakers to outdoor areas you can do so from today. Guidance has been updated to allow this.
