Covid 30-person limit on funerals to be scrapped from May 17 - ahead of schedule

The 30-person limit on funerals in England is set to be scrapped from May 17 at the earliest, it has emerged. The cap on mourners is set to be axed ahead of schedule when England enters Step Three of its roadmap out of lockdown.

Currently funerals can only have 30 attendees while wakes are limited to 15 - a limit that was stuck to for Prince Philip's death.

That 30-person limit was due to remain in place, applying to both funerals and wakes, in Step Three of the roadmap from May 17 onwards.
