I would like to know details of anyone who has died with no known next of kin from 1/1/2017 to the day of your reply. If there are any new cases where the person died prior to 1/1/2017, but that were only dealt with after this date, please also include details.

This should include deaths of any clients whose affairs are managed by the Councils Safeguarding or Deputy-ship Teams, where applicable.
