Video from the UK shows a worker at a crematorium scolding mourners during a funeral because they moved their chairs to be closer to each other during the service.
Under draconian covid rules, funerals services are limited to 30 people, and they must all wear masks and sit 2 metres apart from each other.
The Daily Mail reports that Craig Bicknell, attending his father’s funeral last week, was chided during the ceremony for attempting to comfort his mother.
Video footage shows Mr Bicknell and his brother moving their chairs and putting their arms around their distraught mother, prompting a member of staff to come pacing over waving his arms and warning the family to “move the chairs back,” saying “you were told”.

This is the shocking moment police raid a 200-strong funeral party for breaching coronavirus regulations – landing the hotel manager with a £10,000 fine.
Officers from West Midlands Police entered the grounds of the Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel in Solihull after receiving nine calls complaining about the mass gathering on September 25.
Police body-cam footage shows officers walking through a packed marquee before entering the reception area and demanding to speak to the hotel manager who was off-site.
The police force later said it was the first maximum fine they had issued since the Prime Minister set out a raft of measures designed to clampdown on Covid-19 last month.
At a moment the trade union for the airline industry, International Air Transport Association (IATA), has issued a dire prediction laying out that it doesn’t expect air travel to recover to pre-pandemic levels until at least after 2024, one major foreign carrier is rolling out with an unexpected, deeply unorthodox policy to gem up business and attention.
Emirates, the Dubai-based state-owned airline and flag carrier of the United Arab Emirates, is now offering passengers a ‘safety net’ of sorts, telling customers that if they catch coronavirus while traveling on their flights, the airline will cover all costs related to medical treatment, hotel quarantine, and even their funeral in the event of death.
The desperate measure — and no doubt costly in terms of the airline’s insurance premiums — comes as Emirates says it expects to cut as many as 9,000 jobs in the coming weeks.
One of the internet’s most viral memes has become reality as George Floyd’s pallbearers danced with his casket during the nationally televised funeral on Tuesday afternoon.
For those who are unfamiliar with the original meme, KnowYourMeme.com explains, “Coffin Dance, also known as Dancing Pallbearers or Dancing Coffin, refers to several videos showing Ghanian pallbearers dancing while they are carrying a coffin. In March 2020, the videos, paired with EDM song ‘Astronomia’ by Tony Igy, gained popularity in FAIL edits, similar to To Be Continued and We’ll Be Right Back memes.”
In late April New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio sent the NYPD in to break up the funeral for a popular rabbi in Brooklyn.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (Democrat) issued a warning to the “Jewish community” that he would arrest them for gathering in public as they did for a rabbi’s funeral in the Williamsburg neighborhood in late April.
De Blasio personally intervened at the funeral gathering as a violation of social distancing rules for the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
But today THOUSANDS of New Yorkers attended a memorial service for George Floyd.

On Friday during Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) funeral, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used a Biblical analogy to take a veiled shot at President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump.
Clinton was comparing Cummings to his namesake, the Biblical prophet Elijah, who stood up against wicked King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.

Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson went on a rant against the president and even suggested that Hillary Clinton won the election during his eulogy at Aretha Franklin’s funeral on Friday.
He began his speech saying listing people who were in attendance including, “President Clinton and her husband Bill.”
“Then this orange apparition had the nerve to say she worked for him. You lugubrious leach, you dopey doppelgänger of deceit and deviance, you lethal liar, you dimwitted dictator, you foolish fascist,” Dyson continued.

John McCain was eulogized by two former presidents, along with members of his family at a memorial service at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday.
The stirring tributes to the Arizona senator, who died last week at 81, balanced remembrances of his life and legacy as a statesman, father and husband.
But they also included obvious swipes at current President Donald Trump — who was not invited to the memorial and instead spent the morning golfing and tweeting — and his worldview.
Meghan McCain was up first, and the senator’s daughter delivered an emotional tribute to her father, that turned fiery as she took pointed shots at Trump, notably his campaign slogan.
DETROIT (AP) — As far as one minister is concerned, it’s Maxine Waters Forever!
When Bishop Charles H. Ellis III of Greater Grace Temple assured Rep. Maxine Waters at the Aretha Franklin funeral that “We got your back!” he was repaid in full with the hands fisted, arms crossed “Wakanda Forever!” salute from the California congresswoman.
The moment Friday came during a pause in the program at the Queen of Soul’s homegoing, when Ellis recognized Waters in the audience and acknowledged how she has come under fire, apparently referring to President Trump’s Twitter attacks on the Democrat.
“Maxine Waters, from southside L.A., South Central,” Ellis said.
Waters stood and responded with the signature greeting from the blockbuster film “Black Panther,” with her arms crossed in front of her chest. Many in the audience, including former President Bill Clinton, stood and applauded.
