Revised Guidance During a Period of Emergency

The government has published guidance for cremation authorities and crematorium managers in a period of emergency.

 The Cremation (England and Wales) Regulations 2008 are modified when specific provisions in the Coronavirus Act 2020 are implemented. 

This revised Guidance applies only when the modified Regulations are in force. 

No other version of this Guidance should be used during that period. 

This revised Guidance will no longer apply once the modified Regulations cease to be in force. If you are unsure whether this revised Guidance applies to your case, you should consult your or contact 

The revised guidance is highlighted in the pink text boxes.
