Northern Ireland: changes to funeral restrictions

From today, 12 April 2021, the number permitted to attend funerals in Northern Ireland is informed by a risk assessment for the venue.

Pre and post-funeral gatherings are not permitted.

The remains of the deceased may be taken back to private homes, but wakes are not to be held and funeral services in private homes are not to take place. Existing restrictions on households apply.

An indicative date of 24 May has been set for the resumption of post-funeral gatherings (numbers to be informed by a risk assessment for the venue). This will be subject to review.
