Scottish Government Update

Scottish Government has updated its 3 main guidance documents for the funeral industry: the funeral director guidance; funeral services guidance; and burial and cremation authorities guidance.

Each has been updated to account for the new system of local protection levels, which will be introduced from Monday 2 November.

Scotland’s Strategic Framework sets out the different levels of restrictions that can apply.  The levels are likely to vary for different parts of the country.  In-person attendance at funeral services should continue to be kept to as few people as possible and will be subject to physical distancing and wider public health measures.
