Our services in the light of the virus

The COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus)

This is a very difficult time for all of us, and especially if you have need of our services. We appreciate that you may be unsure about arranging a funeral or understanding what is allowed if a loved one has passed away, and we would like to assure you that we are here to help. We are aware of the rules and regulations regarding funerals including: the number of people who can attend a funeral the safe management of the funeral venue rules for holding a wake Our staff are trained in the procedures necessary to restrict the virus as much as possible. Be assured that the safety of both mourners and of our staff is our highest priority. It is also important to us that the bereaved are treated with sensitivity, dignity and respect.

Attendance at a funeral

The current regulation regarding mourners is that a modest number of close friends and family of the deceased may attend, although there should be no more than thirty (30) people in attendance. Distancing must be observed. Any mourner who has COVID-19 symptoms (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of the normal sense of taste or smell) should not attend the funeral as they could be a risk to others. The rules and guidelines on what is permissable at funerals have changed and no doubt will change again as the virus continues. For this reason, we ask that you contact us directly for the latest advice and guidance in our area. This is guidance from the Government. It explains the rules and the reasons for them. It applies from 5 November 2020. Marie Curie also has information that may help. This leaflet may also help.
