Public Burials

The Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984 places a statutory duty on the District Council to make arrangements for registering the death and making funeral arrangements in cases where there are no known relatives or friends able to make the necessary arrangements.

The Council only has a duty in respect of those who have died within the East Herts Council District. The District Council only deals with those that die at home (or on the street). Hospitals and care homes make similar arrangements to the Council. Residents of the District who pass away in another area are not the responsibility of the District Council.

When involved the Council will contact a local funeral director to make arrangements. Because the Council is spending public money it must ensure that the arrangements it makes are cost effective whilst maintaining the dignity of the occasion.

The service is not provided in the form of a grant. So for example in the case of relatives of the deceased being willing to make their own funeral arrangements but being unable to fund them,  East Herts Council will not act as a "topping up" agency.  However if you or your partner are getting certain social security benefits you may be eligible for a grant from Hertfordshire County Council. Please read Hertfordshire County Council's - Bereavement and Benefits factsheet for more information.

After the funeral the Council is obliged to attempt to recover its cost from the deceased's estate.

For further information please contact Democratic Services on 01279 502174.
