Public health funerals

1) Do you publish details of section 46 funerals undertaken by your council on your website? If YES then please provide the link to the relevant page on the council website.

2) Do you respond with information from FOI requests asking for details of funerals undertaken by the council?

3) Do you refer any matters to a genealogy company or do you have a panel of genealogists who you refer matters to?

4) Do you refer all matters to the Bona Vacantia division of the GLD or the Duchy of Lancaster or Cornwall?

Funerals held pursuant to section 46 of the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 are arranged by district, city or unitary councils.

Devon County Council therefore holds no information with respect to the questions that you have asked. We recommend that you contact a district, city, or unitary council, depending on the geographical area you are interested in, to seek further information.
