Freedom of Information Request

Public Health Funerals

Received: 16 August 2019

I am emailing with an FOI for which I believe you will have data available.

Please provide me with:

A) The total number of public health funerals paid for by the council, broken down by the past three financial years (2018/19, 2017/18, 2016/17), including the total cost the council incurred.

B) For 2018/19 alone, please provide me with:
i) the age and gender of each person who had a public health funeral
ii) for each person, the number of working days after the council was first contacted about arranging a public health funeral that the funeral was held


This is a polite reminder that data protection and Section 40 doesn't apply to people who have died so you should be able to give me the information even if the numbers are small.

Please see an example below of how I would like the data presented.
