Scottish Guidelines on Carrying The Cords and Coffin

15th October 2020 | Guidance

The Scottish Government has published guidelines on carrying the cords and coffin.

Because of the requirement to remain 2 metres apart from one another staff will only be able to ensure a coffin is carried correctly and safely by undertaking this without family involvement.

However, each funeral director is able to carry out a risk assessment and there may be circumstances where the family can have a role in carrying the coffin, such as carrying it as a single household, and the options should be discussed with the relatives.
