Public Health Funerals

If there is no family or other agency to make suitable funeral arrangements for a deceased person, we will arrange a cremation. This is part of our public health duties under the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984.

If the person died in hospital, it is the hospital's responsibility to make arrangements.

We will only arrange a cremation if we establish there is no alternative, following a thorough investigation.

You can view a list of all Public Health Funerals that we have arranged since 1 December 2011.
