Community funerals

Community Funerals

Our Bereavement Services department deal with Public Health Section 46 funerals under the Control of Diseases Act 1984. These are often called - 

  • Public Health Funerals
  • Paupers Funerals
  • Welfare Funerals

we call them Community Funerals. These funerals occur when there is no one -

  • capable
  • willing
  • available

to make the necessary funeral arrangements, or, they simply do not have the financial resources to progress matters.
