Funerals across the country were canceled on the day of the Queen’s funeral

Funerals planned for Monday across the country were canceled in advance Queen’s funeral.

It will not only be funerals, schools, supermarkets and GPs will also close as a mark of respect Your Majesty while Britain grinds to a halt.

The National Association of Funeral Directors made an announcement on social media amid speculation.

It said: “We have been asked if there will be any other funerals on Monday 19 September. Although work is ongoing, some funerals will take place and others will be postponed to another date – guided by the needs and desires of the bereaved families involved.

“Most funeral services booked for September 19 were arranged many weeks ago, so funeral directors and cemeteries/crematoria are working with families to find the best approach for everyone.”

The statement prompted fury on social media, with one user writing: “Oh so it’s fine. “We’re not forcing them to change the date, we’re just pressuring them. Also don’t expect decent service if you do it on the 19th, we don’t care!”

“Families should not be pressured in any way to reschedule, only if they wish,” added another.

Speculation follows on social media with one user claiming: “No one can be buried (or cremated) on Monday September 19th except the Queen.”

Another replied: “My family has had a funeral canceled for that day. They were told there was never a funeral on a public holiday.”

Another social media user asked: “Cancelling funerals now? abominable. Really, would the Queen have wanted that?”
