Tyrone Armatage, who made this request, has recorded this request as successful however; Bradford City Council has not provided any information of the number of burials and cremations in Bradford.
A FOI request to Leeds City Council (adjacent Bradford) of the number of burials and cremations for the years 2015 to 2020 gained the following response: -
Year Cremations Burials Totals
2015 5,876 1,233 7,109
2016 5,704 1,084 6,788
2017 5,888 1,162 7,050
2018 5,955 1,138 7,093
2019 5,861 1,066 6,927
2020 6,016 1,082 7,098

There is no statistical evidence of a surge in excess deaths that one may expect as a result of a pandemic.
An actuary with 35 years experience published his collated FOI responses from 154 councils on Twitter with a spreadsheet image. He also found that there was no evidence of a surge in excess deaths in the UK in 2020.

Dear Freedom of Information,
Thank you Roland for helping disclose this almighty scamdemic.

Yours sincerely,

Tyrone Armatage
