Clarification on wearing of face coverings in funeral vehicles

here have been lots of questions about face coverings in funeral vehicles. This morning (2 October 2020), the Cabinet Office / Department for Transport (DfT) has confirmed:
“Passengers are legally required to wear a face covering when travelling in a funeral director vehicle or hearse. They are also strongly recommended for drivers.”
“It is DfT’s understanding that a funeral car would count as public transport and therefore passengers/mourners would be required to wear a face covering, drivers are not required to wear one (but it is advisable).”
