Crematorium commence trial for live streaming of funerals

During this uncertain and difficult time, Wirral are piloting a new system, for cremation services to be live streamed to enable people around the borough to attend the services of those they have lost.

The authority recognises that whilst government guidelines on social distancing requires the number of mourners at funeral services to be limited to 15, this is does not enable everyone who would like to pay their respects and say goodbye to loved ones.

It is hoped that the live streaming, being piloted at Landican Crematorium this week, will continue to allow for social distancing guidelines to be adhered to, and for families, relatives and friends to say goodbye to loved ones and be able to grieve as they wish to at this already difficult time.
