star this property answer text <p>The Government has not made any such estimate.</p><p> </p><p>In line with the regulatory framework for cremation, ashes would normally be returned to the cremation applicant, which in the case of a public health cremation would be the local authority. However, it is open to the local authority to pass the ashes to any family or friends who come forward, and we would expect this to happen whenever possible.</p> more like this

Planning for these reforms will present an opportunity for consultation and to consider the recommendations both of the Shropshire inquiry and the 2014 Infant Cremation Commission in Scotland, including the appointment of a National Inspector of Crematoria.</p> more like this
