Changes made to funeral guidance in Wales

The Welsh Government has updated the guidance on managing and attending a funeral from today (7 December).

A key change is that the number of people who can attend a funeral is defined by the CVOID-secure limit of the venue (e.g. the ability to maintain a 2 metre distance between persons present at a funeral, be that a cremation or burial).  Those who are officiating/working at the venue are not included in the number of attendees.

In addition, Regulation 6 remains in place, which provides that “attendance at a funeral as a mourner is limited to those responsible for arranging the funeral, those specifically invited by the organiser of the funeral, and the carer of anyone attending.”
