Subject Line: FOI 1718_00222 Acknowledgment
Dear Mr Laycock

Thank you for your request for Spelthorne Borough Council which we received on
09-Nov-2017. We will be dealing with your request for information in accordance
with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and have assigned it a reference of FOI
1718_00222 and forwarded it to the appropriate department who will respond
directly to you. Under the Act we have 20 working days to respond to your
request.

Dealing with your request: In normal circumstances we should be able to (a)
confirm or deny that we hold this information and (b) if we hold it, send it to
you within the statutory timescale of 20 working days. You should note however
that the Act defines a number of exemptions which may prevent us complying with
either of these duties. We will explain if this is the case and if we apply the
'public interest test' to our decision.

If the information is readily available by other means, such as on our website,
we will point you in this direction and would not generally expect to reproduce
it specifically, and we will tell you this as soon as we can.

In some circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, we will let
you know. A fee notice will be issued to you, and you will be required to pay
before we will proceed with your request.

If you have any queries about this request, please email
[1][email address] quoting the FOI reference number.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mx

 

I can confirm that Spelthorne Borough Council does not hold the requested
information as the cremation service is not one as currently provided by
Spelthorne Borough Council and, as the nearest crematorium to the
Spelthorne boundaries is South West Middlesex Crematorium, Hounslow Road,
Hanworth, Feltham TW13 5JH, I would therefore advise you to redirect your
enquiry to them.  Hounslow Borough Council can be contacted for Freedom of
Information via
[1]https://www.hounslow.gov.uk/info/20110/o...

 

You are advised that this information is provided in accordance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 and is for your personal use.  Any re-use
of this information will be subject to the Re-Use of Public Sector
Information Regulations (2015) and authorisation from the Council will be
required.  In the event of any re-use, the information must be reproduced
accurately and not used in a misleading manner.

 

If you are not satisfied with the way the Council has handled your
request, you may ask for an internal review. 

 

Please contact Clare Williams, Information Governance Officer, by email to
[2][email address] who will arrange an internal review of your
request. Under regulation 11(2), you must contact us for a review no later
than 40 working days after the date of this email.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
