Dear J Taylor,

Your request for information has now been considered and the information
requested is below:

 As a Local Authority, we follow the most up to date national guidance set
by the Government. All our policies, instructions and procedures are
directly from what is already published on the Gov website. Please visit
the ‘COVID-19: guidance for managing a funeral during the coronavirus
pandemic’ section online at the following address:
([1]https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...).

Currently, we are now allowing up to 30 persons in the Oak chapel and 16
in the Willow. The chairs are set out in groups of various numbers making
up the 30 or 16 they are no longer set out in individually.  This is to
allow families to be able to sit together. Nevertheless, we still
encourage everyone to main social distancing rules and unless exempt, face
covering must be worn during services. We also have hand washing
facilities and toilets for mourners to use when services are taking place
along with hand sanitisers.

 

If you have a complaint about the handling of your request then you may
request an internal review within the next 40 working days which will be
considered as part of Stage 2 of the Council’s complaints procedure.
