There is currently no government guidance preventing funeral services from taking place and funeral directors are working hard to support bereaved families at this very difficult time. However, all funeral services that do take place MUST respect current Government requests for social distancing and the protection of high risk groups.

We are advising funeral directors to work closely with families to work out how best they can hold a funeral, in line with Government guidance, together with any local requirements and restrictions.

This means:

We understand this advice may be very difficult for families, but it is vitally important we respect Government guidance for social distancing - to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
