Guidance for ringing for the Duke of Edinburgh

The Cabinet Office has declared 8 days of official mourning, during which time any other ringing should be half-muffled and in accordance with current Covid-19 restrictions. Half-muffled tolling or chiming of a single bell is recommended on the day of the funeral. There is no special dispensation of current ringing guidance on Sunday.



We are following guidance from both the Government and the Church of England with regards to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19).
