The Public Health (Control of Diseases) Act 1984 places a statutory duty on Cannock Chase District Council for registering the death and arranging the funeral of any person who has died within the district in cases where there are no known relatives or friends able to make the necessary arrangements.
The Council, along with many other local authorities, has been experiencing a huge rise in Freedom of Information (FOI) requests from companies offering to trace the next of kin of persons being buried under the Public Health Act 1948. In response to the volume of FOI requests on this subject the Council has created this page to make the information more accessible.
