From 100 funerals a month to 20 each day: Funeral Director has 'never seen anything like this'

Funeral Directors W Sherry and Sons have never seen anything like this in their 170 year history.

They are dealing with a huge rise in funerals and while they can cope with the numbers it's harder to help mourners cope with their grief.

Shannon Searing's grandfather died from cancer not coronavirus but the crematorium still limited the guest list to ten and they had to keep their distance.

Some religious groups are banning all mourners from physically attending funerals but there is no legal cap on numbers.

With hospital morgues at capacity pop up morgues around London are taking the strain.

Neil Sherry expects months more misery and with limited access to protective clothing his team is having to keep a distance from the living so they can take care of the growing number of dead.
