Linked ceremonial events such as stone settings and ash scatterings can also continue with up to 15 people in attendance. Anyone working is not included. Social distancing should be maintained between people who do not live together or share a support bubble.

The Church is here to help you through the difficult times when a loved one has died. A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, and we offer support before, during and after the service.
If you are arranging a funeral and would like it to take place in church, tell your funeral director and they’ll get in touch with us.
If you would like a minister to take a funeral service in the crematorium, let your funeral director know that this is what you would like. They will approach the clergy of the parish (area) you live in in the first instance.
