    Further to my previous email, the Government has now published further guidance on social gatherings.

    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others

    With regards to funerals this is clear and unequivocal:

    • Places of worship, except for funerals attended by immediate families are closed for social gatherings.
    • Every citizen must comply with these new measures. The relevant authorities, including the police, will begiven the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.
    • These measures are effective immediately.

    Immediate family are classified as:

    • Spouse/Partner
    • Parents/Carers
    • Brothers/Sisters
    • Children (and partners)

    In respect of this I would be grateful if this message could be circulated accordingly.
