Public Health Funerals

The council does not currently provide a destitute or statutory funeral as a matter of course.

A Public Health Funeral is when the council provides a low cost funeral arrangement with a dedicated funeral director for a person who has insufficient property or funds or  a Public Health Funeral is for a person who has property to cover the cost of the funeral, but no living family to make the arrangements.

In either of these circumstances please contact us to discuss the situation.

We are frequently asked for information concerning Public Health Funerals which is exempt from the Data Protection Act 1990.
