Public Health Burials

Under the Public Health Act 1984 East Lindsey District Council can be asked to make arrangements for the burial or cremation of a person who has no family or other person who can undertake such arrangements.

When a Local Authority makes arrangements it becomes responsible for the person's estate. Any possessions may be disposed of in order to raise monies to cover the costs incurred by the cremation or burial.
