The request was successful.

Dear Buckinghamshire Council,
I am writing to request the total number of cremations carried out at your facilities in Buckinghamshire during the last 5 years 2015 to 2020. A total number for each year would be sufficient, rather than at individual crematoria.
I would also like the total figure for the 2021 year so far.

Yours faithfully,

Sue Whicker

Buckinghamshire Council
