I am conducting research on council expenses and I would like to request some information regarding to funerals that the council has held since 1st October 2012.
Would you please provide answers to the following questions:
How many funerals (public health funerals/national assistance funerals) have been held by the council since 1st October?
Please provide the cost for each funeral held.
For each funeral also provide:
a) Date of death of the deceased
b) Date of funeral provided
c) Name of the deceased
d) Last known address (if known)
e) Have the next of kin been traced?
f) Have the details of the deceased been referred to the QLTR, Treasury Soclitor, Duchy of Cornwall, Duchy of Lancaster, or any other organisation/governing body?
g) The councils reason for providing this funeral?
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 no involvement in any burials that required referral to the Treasury Solicitor, Duchy of Lancaster or Cornwall or for Scotland the QLTR department since 1st October 2012.
