Attending a Funeral

The majority of restrictions have now been removed and as such there is no limitation on attendees at funerals and face coverings are no longer required.

Travel to a funeral

Travel to funerals including overnight stays is permitted.


For any religious, belief-based or commemorative events following a person’s death, such as stone setting ceremonies, the scattering of ashes or a wake, the majority of COVID-19 restrictions have now been removed; however please check with the venue you are using who may have restrictions and requirements in place for their employees and guests.

Pre Paid Funeral Plans

Purchasing a pre-paid funeral plan is not affected by the COVID pandemic. Pre-paid funeral plans can be set up in the same way as before the pandemic. When you purchase a pre-paid funeral plan hopefully it will not need to be used for some time and the rules for attending funerals will be as they are at the time of death (not at the time of purchase).

Direct Cremation

An unattended cremation without a service, also known as a Direct Cremation, has increased in popularity over recent years and even more so during the COVID pandemic. This is a lower cost option and provides the opportunity for family and friends to celebrate the life of the deceased in their own way, such as arranging a Memorial service or an informal gathering at a given location such as home, a place special to the deceased or hospitality venue. For more information regarding the direct cremation option please contact us on 0800 689 1060 or Click Here
