Covid-19: Pandemic funeral providers not what individuals ‘deserve’


Gary Stewart’s spouse Jude died from the coronavirus in the beginning of the 12 months. She had been living in a care home and he hadn’t been in a position to see her for months.

Because of restrictions attributable to the pandemic, not more than 30 individuals might attend and so they needed to socially distance.

Gary, who lives near Peterborough, describes his spouse’s funeral as “a ridiculous non-event” and never “what she deserved”.

He spoke to the BBC forward of Prince Philip’s funeral this Saturday, which is able to solely have 30 mourners in keeping with Covid rules.
