I am looking for information about the amount of money spent by councils on public health funerals, also known as paupers’ funerals.

As such, I would really appreciate answers to the following questions:

1. How many public health funerals has the council carried out in each month of the 2020/21 financial year, to date?

2. How much has the council spent on carrying out public health funerals in each month of the 2020/21 financial year, to date?

3. How many public health funerals did the council carry out in each month of the 2018/19 and 2019/20 financial years?

4. How much did the council spend carrying out public health funerals in each month of the 2018/19 and 2019/20 financial years?

I understand that under the Act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you would confirm in writing that you have received this request.

I would really appreciate your help with this request – I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Ramzy Alwakeel

I have carefully considered your request and investigated whether there is
any additional information available that is not already publicly
available.

 

I have determined that the information you have requested is already
publicly available, and therefore under the Freedom of Information Act
(2000), Section 21 (information accessible to applicant by other means)
this information is exempt from requiring further action in order to make
it accessible to you and the general public.

 

The above exemption specifies that where information is already reasonably
accessible to the applicant there is no duty for the local authority to
provide any additional copy of the material. This may include information
for which a charge applies.

 

This exemption also requires the local authority to inform you where this
information is available from and how to access it. The details of how to
obtain it are provided below:

Please see section headed Public Health Funerals

 

All applicants have a 'right of appeal'.  An appeal should be focused on
the original request and should identify how the council’s response failed
to answer your information request.  Appeals must be made in writing (or
