Coroners – new review of crematoria

The government want to use this review to establish whether the concerns that have been raised are widespread. We are therefore seeking the views of all faith communities and users of crematoria, whether they are of a faith or none. We are also seeking views from the providers of crematoria, including local authorities and the private sector, as well as the Local Government Association and industry representative bodies. The Government will publish a summary of responses in due course and consider whether any policy changes are needed in light of the evidence received.


The consultation will last for 10 weeks from 16 March to 26 May 2016 and is available on the Department for Communities and Local Government website at:
