Funeral directors have been faced with a huge responsibility.
The government's made a last minute decision to increase the attendance limit at funeral or tangi from 10 to 50.
Funeral directors will need to enforce health measures and ensure social distancing is maintained.
Shann Longley from Terry Longley and Son Funeral Services told Kate Hawkesby they're grateful for the chance to make things right.
“We have to get it right, not just for the funeral industry but for the country as a whole.”
