COVID 19 UPDATE:
Dear Families and Friends, in the light of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we want to provide you with an update of the current services that we can offer you when arranging a funeral.
We understand this is an especially difficult time for the bereaved and want to assure you we are here for you every step of the way.
Due to social distancing measures and changes in the way we are able to care for the deceased, as well as the bereaved and our staff, we are constantly revising our procedures
We are continuing to provide the first class service that you have come to expect from us, at the moment, our office staff are only meeting with families who have made an appointment to see us.
Please find below further very important information from the Scottish Government:
The Current Restrictions
Those organising a funeral or advising others on attendance at a funeral service, should review and take into account all of the following:
In-person attendance at funeral services is currently limited to a maximum of 50 people in all areas of Scotland. This is not including the funeral director, venue staff or celebrant but it does include children of all ages and any person hired by the family. Numbers of attendees will also be based on the size of the venue and its ability to maintain strict physical distancing measures, so the number able to attend may be less than the maximum number for the area;
In areas which are under lockdown, post-funeral gatherings such as wakes and funeral teas are not permitted.
We strongly discourage people who are not counted in the maximum number from going along to the funeral service and gathering outside the crematorium, funeral director service room, or in the burial ground
All attendees must maintain at least 2 metres distance from each other at all times (unless they are from the same household, or are a carer and the person assisted by the carer). References to a household include an extended household;
If available, those who cannot attend a funeral service in person should consider joining remotely from home via electronic means or viewing a recording of the service;
All attendees should maintain good hand and cough hygiene, both before and after attending a service e.g. such as regular hand washing, disposing of tissues etc., safely, and ideally, taking them home to dispose of;
If a person is showing symptoms of COVID-19 infection or has tested positive with COVID-19 they should not attend a funeral service in person, during the period they are required to self-isolate because they pose a risk to others;
If a person is not symptomatic or has not tested positive with COVID-19, but is self-isolating due to another member of their household either showing symptoms of COVID-19 or their household member has tested positive with COVID-19, that person should not attend a funeral service in person. They should instead continue to follow household self-isolation
If a person is not symptomatic or has not tested positive with COVID-19, but is self-isolating as a result of contact with a positive case (identified through contact tracing), they should not attend a funeral service in person. This person should instead follow all contact tracing and self-isolation advice provided to them.
