Yes this is now possible again however there are a number of restrictions in place including limiting the number of people who can be in the chapel at the same time

In line with Government guidance, attendees should be limited to the immediate family who are not in any of the high-risk categories and are not self-isolating. The immediate family being:
– Spouse/Partner
– Parents/carers
– Brothers/Sisters
– Children (and partners)

These are guidelines and not rules, so it would still be possible for a small number of close friends to attend in some circumstances.
