Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people, and it is advised that only close friends and family attend. Linked ceremonial events such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 15 people in attendance. Anyone working is not included. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.

A funeral is an opportunity to celebrate the life we have shared with the deceased and to commend them to God’s loving care.

It gives us time and space to say goodbye formally and to pray for the future for both them and ourselves.
