Family Precedence.
« on: Thursday 31 December 20 18:38 GMT (UK) »
This is a question that combines Genealogy involved with the dilemnas facing quite a few people I'm sure given the current restrictions on relatives attending Funerals.Who would people say would take precedence a First Cousin or a Niece?

That is an interesting topic, I will wait and see what others make of this, unfortunately at the moment numbers are restricted, if I was the bereaved person the less people the better to have to talk to after the service when one has to make small talk  to people who I might not even know

I myself am leaning towards the First Cousin as they are of the same generation as the deceased.

Neither. The person organising the funeral would decide, and it wouldn't be on a genealogical basis.

My recent experience of this involved my Brother some six weeks ago now.However my sister-in-law reached the allotted 20 counting siblings,children and grandchildren.

Hi,

In New South Wales, Australia, funeral directors have organised online access via zoom sessions.  This has allowed the older generation to attend remotely, while the younger set accompany the coffin.  At one stage in 2020 in our family,  we were restricted to 10 people at a funeral ... so the widow attended, the adult children attended and on the remaining seats there were floral tributes with cards highlighting the names of the people who sent them.  Funeral director organised close up vision of cards.  We knew we were represented here.    Funeral director staff were excellent, patient, kind and the widow has praised them.  The older generation who zoomed included deceaseds brothers and sisters.

So the widow, her children and some of the grandchildren attended,  and some of the grandchildren did not,  .... restricted numbers.  No one squabbled, everyone cared for the grieving widow.

I watched a funeral remotely recently. I would not have been able to go in normal times, so this was actually a bonus!  Anyway, a group of us linked up by messenger and watched at the same time, tapping comments to each other throughout.  It turned into a really social affair!
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

We had a video invite to a funeral we wasn't allowed to go to as numbers were restricted, it was very warming to sit in our own home watching the service, sadly we had 5 funerals in all and  that was the only videoed one, the other 4 it feels as they have just disappeared , sad times
