DMAG has been informed by Scottish Government that it has received reports that the guidance on the maximum number of people who can attend a funeral in Scotland (20 people, excluding the funeral director, celebrant, clergyman and venue staff) is not being followed in some cases. This includes funeral services being held at funeral directors’ premises. The Scottish Government is following this up with those concerned.
DMAG is reminding members of its constituent organisations in Scotland to follow the published guidance which can be found at the following link:
Members are reminded that failure to follow government guidance may be considered a breach of DMAG constituent organisations’ Codes of Practice.
