We decide applications for exhumation licences, regulate the removal of human remains from disused burial grounds and consider applications for the closure of churchyards. We provide advice on burial law and practice for the public and for burial professionals, but are not for responsible for enforcing burial legislation.
The legislation is currently under review to ensure that it meets the needs of modern society.
