Request:

  1. How many of these funerals did you arrange in the last financial year?
    2. Would you list all funerals with the following details for each: the date, whether the body was buried or cremated, whether a funeral service was held, the total cost (including all disbursements such as crematorium fees and burial plots? Excluding any offset of monies recovered from the estates of the deceased), and the funeral director used. I do not require any personal information such as name or date of birth of the deceased.
  2. How were the funerals providers found – on a case-by-case basis or part of a tendered contract?
    4. If part of a tendered contract, when did the contract begin and when is it scheduled to be renewed?
