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.
Whilst details of the number of Public Health funerals are recorded by the Council the information you request in relation to individual costs is not available and therefore we are unable to answer this particular part of your enquiry. Attached is a list of Public Health Act funerals that have taken place between 2006 and 2010.
Information regarding more recent 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.
