Update: Mourner numbers at Rotherham Crematorium cut for a second time

ROTHERHAM Crematorium has decreased the number of mourners allowed at services for a second time.

The updated change will take immediate effect and falls in line with the rest of the UK's private crematoria operators during the coronavirus outbreak.

Dignity, which runs the crematorium on behalf of Rotherham Council, said: "All the UK's private crematoria operators, including The Crematorium & Memorial Group (Dignity plc), will be limiting the number of mourners that can attend a funeral held at a crematoria to ten close family members only.

"This directive was given the support of the UK Government cabinet offiice."

Those unable to attend will be able to view the service online
