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

This is a very difficult time for all of us. It is especially hard or confusing 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, and the rules apply regardless of the funeral being inside or outside. Up to fifteen (15) may attend linked commemorative events such as a wake, stone settings and ash scatterings. You may still find it easier to hold such an event at a later date. Face coverings will be needed. Any mourner who has COVID-19 symptoms (for example, 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. These rules apply from 13 April 2021. This is a link to the official government information. It gives clear information on who can and cannot attend, travelling to funerals and so on. The rules and guidelines on what is permissable at funerals will change as the virus continues and more people are vaccinated. For this reason, we ask that you contact us directly for the latest advice and guidance in our area, and to discuss any issues. It is possible that some restrictions may be eased in mid-May 2021.
