COVID-19 COVID-19: Registrars, funerals and cemeteries


Last updated 8.30am, Monday 19 July 2021

Face coverings

These are no longer required by law in any setting, but the Government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas.  Our staff will, therefore, continue to wear face coverings in communal areas (such as entrances, stairwells, corridors etc.) and we would encourage our customers to do the same. This includes guests at all ceremonies unless you have an exemption from wearing one.  

Social Distancing

This also no longer applies, and you do not need to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with.  However, in order to keep our staff and customers safe the Registrars will maintain a minimum of one metre distance from our customers, including ceremonies. 

NHS Test and Trace

If someone has been instructed by NHS Test and Trace to self isolate (because they have tested positive for COVID 19 or they’re a close contact of someone who has) they must not attend.  We are no longer required by law to collect customer details but we will continue to display an NHS QR code for customers wishing to check in using the app.
