Funerals

During the Covid19 preventative measures unfortunately it is only possible for immediate family to attend a funeral service with a maximum of 20 people attending, or fewer to ensure 2m social distancing.

Meeting with family groups to arrange a funeral service must be limited to the Scottish Government restrictions. It will also be possible for Rev Donald to meet with families via Facetime, Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom or FaceBook messenger.

Those attending the funeral service must be restricted to immediate family and whether indoors or outdoors the maximum number is restricted to 20. Face-coverings and other measures will be observed.

Scottish Government requirements haven updated 8th February:

Rev Donald will discuss with families other options to include wider family and circle of friends and community. Recordings of services, Recorded video tributes are among the possibilities. A later service of Thanksgiving may be appropriate after all restrictions are lifted.
