I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my enquiry as specifically as possible. However, if this request is too wide or unclear, please feel free to contact me for clarification.

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
