Services at Aberdeen Crematorium are re-starting from Monday 11 May with national social distancing rules for funerals being applied.
As with services across Scotland, only a small number of close family or household members can attend, or alternatively a friend if no family are available, to help minimise the spread of coronavirus. The Scottish Government guidance can be found at https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-for-funeral-services/.
The current position of re-starting services reflects the latest modelling data for the pandemic. Funeral directors will continue to organise and lead services.
The public are being asked by the Scottish Government to stay at home as much as possible and avoid unnecessary social contact. People over 70 and those who have high risk and underlying health conditions are being strongly advised to stay at home as much as possible and significantly reduce unnecessary social contact.
