I would like to know how many public health funerals have been carried out by your local authority since April 2012.
Thank you for your freedom of information request pertaining to deaths that the council has sent or will be sending to the Treasury Solicitor, this has been passed to me for a reply as the responsible Officer for this service area.
I can confirm that Brentwood Borough Council has had involvement in one burial that required referral to the Treasury Solicitor, Duchy of Lancaster or Cornwall or for Scotland the QLTR department since 1st April 2012.
I can also confirm that the Council holds the following information in relation to this burial:
· Name of Deceased: Mr John Malcolm Ball
· Date of Birth of Deceased: 29/6/47
· Next of kin were traced and notified
· Date of cremation: 5/7/12
I’m afraid at this stage no other information is held or available.
