COVID-19 Funeral Advice

How many people can attend a funeral?

From April 12th 2021, as long as there are no government changes, the current ruling of 15 will be relaxed to allow 30 people to attend a funeral service and a wake can be held for up to 15 people.

From May 17th 2021, again as long as there are no government changes, the number of people that can attend a funeral stays at 30, but the number of people that can attend the wake will increase to 30.

We are very hopeful that all restrictions on funerals will be lifted from June 21st 2021.  Meaning that families are able to have the funeral that they want for their loved ones with all friends and family.

These dates are constantly being reviewed so we would ask you to just use these dates as a guide and to contact us prior to arranging anything.
