I amwriting to you to submit a request for information using the Freedom of Information Act 200
I would like to know
How many people in your authority were provided with public health funerals in the years (financial):
I would also like a breakdown of men and women for each year.
I would like to know how much the total cost was for the local authority in each of the financial years listed.
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request concerning public health act funerals, this has been passed to me for a reply as the responsible Officer for this service area.
Information regarding Public Health Act funerals is now available on the Brentwood Borough Council website, which is up to date, and is up dated at the end of every month. You can access this information by going to http://opendata.brentwood.gov.uk/View/general-information/parish-burials-public-health-funerals.
As for the total cost for the authority in each financial year; unfortunately we do not hold this information as there is no specific budget or expenditure code for Public Health Act Funerals.
