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.
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.
