Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice
Cemeteries and the crematorium
Updated 25 May
It is compulsory by law for everyone attending an indoor funeral service to wear a face covering.
The most recent guidance from the Scottish Government is that attendance at all burial and cremation services should be restricted to allow physical distancing - this includes children of all ages.
At our Crematorium, a maximum of 34 people can attend services to allow physical distancing. Please do not travel to the Crematorium unless you are attending the service. This applies only to funeral services, other gatherings such as wakes are still subject to the rules which apply to all other indoor and outdoor gatherings.
At our Cemeteries, a maximum of 50 people can be in attendance and again, please do not travel to the cemetery unless attending the funeral.
For more information see the Scottish Government's guidance.
A streaming option is available at our Crematorium so families and friends can watch the funeral service of their loved one. A secure login and password is required.
