I would like to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act regarding public health funerals which have taken place from September 2012 to the date of your reply.
For each funeral provide details which include answers to the following questions:
Does the council publish details of public health funerals in newspapers/public notice sections? Such as the obituaries section of a newspaper? Or any other public notice section or a newspaper?
Please provide details of which newspaper and/or which section these obituaries are published in and which council officer or department within the council sends these details to the newspaper/public notice sections?
Date of death of the deceased?
Name of the deceased?
Place of death/last known address?
Place of birth/date of birth?
Have the next of kin have been traced?
Estate value? (if known)
The date on which the details will be referred to the Treasury Solicitory (or QLTR, Duchy or National Ultimus Haeres within their jurisdictions) or any other public authority for further investigations?
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 September 2012.
