The Scottish Government has just updated its guidance on funeral services during the coronavirus lockdown. The guidelines are still very restrictive, in line with the fact that we are at a very risky stage with a real danger of a second wave of the virus.
The guidance does not lay down a maximum number for those attending a service – it leaves it open to individual crematoriums and local authorities to decide within the overall guidance. So if you are having to arrange a funeral it’s important to check how many people can attend your local cemetery or crematorium.
