Funerals and related events in Tier 4 areas in England – new limits on attendees

Following the placing of some parts of England into Tier 4, there has been an amendment to the number of people who can attend an event linked to a funeral. The following is taken from the UK Gov website:

‘Funerals can be attended by a maximum of 30 people. Linked religious, belief-based or commemorative events, such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 6 people in attendance. Anyone working is not counted in these limits. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.’

There has been no change to the number of attendees at funeral, but the number of attendees at a linked post-funeral event has been reduced from 15 to 6.
