Walsall Council recognises that losing a loved one at any time is traumatic, but it has been even more difficult during the current pandemic, with limits on the numbers who can attend funerals.

Government guidance states that:

Funeral ceremonies must have no more than 30 people attending, whether indoors or outdoors. This number does not include funeral staff.  The actual number of people able to attend will depend on how many people can be safely accommodated within the premises with social distancing, and where the funeral venue manager has carried out a risk assessment and taken all reasonable measures to limit the risk of transmission of COVID-19. In some cases, this may be fewer than 30 people.
