The Scottish Government acknowledges that this continues to be a very difficult time for families and all organisations working to provide funeral services during this pandemic.  We continue to review current procedures and will issue updates as soon as they are available.

Burial and cremation authorities can choose to register their business/organisation details via our Funeral Industry blog, in order to receive notification of any future changes relevant to their work.
