Dear Miss James,

Please be aware that as this request will be potentially huge as some of the Cemeteries have been open for many many years, we would benefit from a timeline required.

Within the Freedom of Information Act 2000, there is an 18hour caveat with regard to the amount of time it takes to compile the information and our right to refuse on that basis.

We will also aggregate your 2 requests into 1 and provide 1 response as it is the same request about different cemeteries.(Please see below)

Please provide a response within 15 working days. If a response is not provided it will be deemed that the information is no longer required.

Dear InformationRights,

Thank you for your reply.

I'm requesting a spreadsheet of all the burials in Walsall from when each cemetery opened as when I have requested this from other authorities, they have sent me a spreadsheet that they utilise themselves and have readily available.

If this format is not available, please advise what format you are able to send them in.

Yours sincerely,

Georgina James

Further to your request for information regarding total number of burials and cremations in Walsall, I am now in a position to respond and hence I can provide the attached excel spreadsheet containing the information requested.

We have no information regarding a Wood Street Cemetery as that site is not known to us.

I hope that this information meets your needs.
