Our services in the light of the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus)

This continues to be a difficult time for us all. 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 or other commemorative event 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 or commemorative event

These regulations and guidance are from 27 August 2021. The term commemorative event includes stone setting ceremonies, the scattering of ashes and wakes. There are now no legal restrictions on the number of attendees at a funeral or commemorative event. However, the virus has not ‘gone away’ and we all still have to be careful and take whatever steps we can. It is possible that a venue may impose its own regulations if the safety of staff or guests is a concern, and you will be expected to follow any regulations and requirements. NHS track and trace may be used. We know the venues and can advise. Common sense and consideration for others applies. In crowded spaces, wearing a mask will help reduce the chances of spreading the virus. Although the 2m restriction no longer legally applies, it is still common sense in situations such as a funeral or commemorative event where many people may be close together and some may be at higher risk. Normal rules, such as regular and thorough hand washing, still apply. Anyone who has recently tested positive or who has any symptoms of the virus, or anyone who is supposed to be self- isolating or has been in contact with someone who has the virus should not attend. If you are not sure of the symptoms, this link may help, but common ones include high temperatures, new and persistent cough or loss of taste (these are not the only symptoms).

The rules and guidelines on what is permissable at funerals may change as the virus continues and more people are vaccinated.
