Latest guidance during Corona virus pandemic

| News |  

From 6 January, during the national lockdown people are permitted to leave their homes to attend a funeral as well as other religious, belief-based, or commemorative events that are linked to a person’s death, as long as they follow the relevant rules and guidance.

During the national lockdown, funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people.

Religious, belief-based or commemorative events linked to a person’s death, such as stone setting ceremonies, the scattering of ashes or a wake, can also continue with up to 6 people in attendance. In this guidance, the phrase ‘commemorative events’ will be used to refer to such events.

In Scotland up to 20 people can attend the funeral. In Wales there is no limit but the advice is to keep the number as low as possible.

 

Information for funeral receptions or wakes 

England Only 6 guests at this time

Wales No funeral wakes at this time

Scotland No funeral wakes at this time

If you are planning a wake in a venue such as a place of worship or hospitality venue, social distancing should be maintained. If you are planning a wake in a private home or outdoor space you should follow the general rules on meeting people. This means you might not be able to have so many people, depending on what protection level you’re in.

Crematoriums and burial grounds will be open to the public within all local restriction tiers.
