Funerals during lockdown
The funeral industry has been hit very hard by the virus. There is now a massive disparity between the demands of a crisis and people’s spiritual needs. Add into the mix the inconsistent advice across the country from different councils, lack of governmental advice about the care of those deceased from Covid 19 and a lack of PPE has just led to confusion and fear. Funeral Directors have been unable to offer their usual level of empathy and care because of social distancing and other protectionary measures.
