Public Health Funerals

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I seek the following information about the number of funerals your organisation has paid for in the last financial year (1st April 2015-31st March 2016). These are often referred to as public health or pauper funerals.

1. How many of these funerals did you arrange in the last financial year? Six
2. How were the funerals providers found – on a case-by-case basis or part of a larger contract? The Trust uses one provider to arrange these funerals.
3. Whose role was it to find the funeral director? with contact details if possible.
Relatives Office Manager
4. Would you list each funeral with the following details for each: the date, whether the body was buried or cremated, whether a funeral service was held, the total cost, and the funeral provider used, whether a local council or another NHS trust contributed any money for this funeral, and if so which. 

The Trust does not hold details of funeral dates.
