Select Committee on Environment, Transport and Regional Affairs Memoranda

Supplementary Memorandum by the Confederation of Burial Authorities (CEM 39(a))

  I would however like to draw the Committee's attention to my answer to Mr Benn (Q.351). It has been brought to my attention by the Home Office that they have existing powers under section 8 of the Burial Act 1855 to inspect "any burial ground or cemetery".

  The CBA has recently produced a Directory of Cemeteries and Crematoria in the UK and I have sent under separate cover today a complimentary copy addressed to the committee's chairman, Andrew Bennett.
