Other funerals have not been banned on the day of the Queen’s funeral

Many have claimed that funerals, burials and cremations will be banned on Monday, but there is no formal requirement for this. Some operators may choose to close, however. The Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management said they understand some funerals have been postponed as a result of this, but that the majority of funerals would go ahead as planned.How much will the Queen’s funeral cost?
Many have been speculating about the cost of the Queen’s funeral, but there is no official estimate. Other royal funerals have cost up to about £8m in today’s money. The economic impact of an additional bank holiday could be billions of pounds.

As such, this could not be liquidated and redistributed as suggested.

The government hasn’t quietly proposed banning unions
Widely shared social media posts suggest that government plans to ban unions have been quietly proposed while the news is focused on coverage of the Queen. But the evidence for this is a digitally manipulated image designed to look like the government website.
