These are not permitted until further notice, in line with the recently announced restrictions.


Special arrangements will be put in place to enable committal of the deceased to take place within a reasonable timescale, with a limited number of family present. Where a full funeral was not possible at the time, we will work with next-of-kin to facilitate a memorial service if they wish to have one, as soon as it is safe to do so.
