I would just like to take a moment to thank everybody that works in the funeral industry. It seems that no matter the situation, storms, snow and now Coronavirus, the employees working in this tough yet vital industry are always overlooked.
I do thank the NHS, fire service, police etc – (they are amazing) but also we need to remember our funeral staff.
They are ensuring that funerals are still arranged and conducted, chapel of rest visits go ahead, out of hours services are maintained professionally, embalming still takes place. The list of their duties is endless, and they complete them all with unwavering efficiency and dedication.
The government today has spoken about keyworkers in relation to the Coronavirus, but I have not heard mention of funeral employees, and I need everybody to understand that they are keyworkers.
They are not immune to Covid-19, they are out everyday looking after the community, looking after the deceased and the bereaved, face to face.
Please do thank them, they have earnt it, and continue to do so day in day out, no matter the situation.
Please do leave a comment, let me know what you think. look forward to hearing from you ❤️
20.03.2020 – Update –
The UK government have now added to their keyworkers list as follows:
Key public services…
This includes those essential to the running of the justice system, religious staff, charities and workers delivering key frontline services, THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF THE DECEASED, and journalists and broadcasters who are providing public service broadcasting.
Definitely a step in the right direction.
