8. Published Cremation Authority Policy Statements

The aim of having a standardised policy statement is to ensure accurate information on local cremation practice is available to those who have been bereaved (and the general public). Its secondary purpose is to make it easier for local partners, eg hospitals and funeral directors, to find this information, thus helping to improve the consistency of cremation information provided to those who have been bereaved.

The Inspector of Crematoria conducted checks of all cremation authority websites to ensure that the Policy Statement on Infant Cremations was publically available. In most instances, they were found to be present, and where it was not it was brought to their attention and rectified. Every cremation authority now displays it's policy statement online
