On the Frontline

At the moment, and quite rightly so, a lot of attention is being paid to our ‘frontline’ services. We are showing our respect to the NHS doctors and nurses, to hospital workers and the NHS as a whole, to the food supply chain, to teachers, to our postal and delivery services and to many, many more. They are keeping the country operating – all at great risk to themselves.
One vital group have so far been pretty noticeably absent from public discussion. The funeral workforce. These are the last essential workers on the frontline in the coronavirus outbreak. They are doing whatever they can to help the NHS and the families of the bereaved. They have my utmost respect.
