• From 17 May, the number of attendees at a funeral is determined by how many people the venue can safely accommodate with social distancing measures in place, including anyone working. There will no longer be a maximum number of attendees defined in regulations. You should establish the safe capacity of the venue with the venue manager as this will determine the maximum number of people who will be able to attend the funeral.

  • Light refreshments are permitted at events linked to funerals


  • Symptomatic people should not attend funerals


  • People who are self-isolating should not attend funerals unless they are a close family member of the person that has died.
