Another authoritys figures clearly demonstrating 3 of the 5years data figures are higher than that of the so called 2020pandemic. Showing no increase in the number of burials in 2020 compared to other years.

Dear [email address],

Thankyou for providing the information as requested. In line with other county authoritys it clearly demonstrates the total lack of any so called pandemic. 3 of the previous years showing higher numbers.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Mitchell

Hi Paul,

 

We have had a few FOI requests like this and have answered the question as
asked.  However, it might be worth noting that we only run a few
cemeteries. If you are looking for more accurate death figures you should
ask the Registrar’s Office who record the number of deaths rather than
burials.

 

Try Leicestershire County Council – [1][email address]

 

Kind regards,

Sharon
