All enquiries regarding exhumation should initially be made to a funeral director who will liaise with us and obtain the necessary documents for completion.
In most cases a Ministry of Justice licence will be required. If the person is buried in consecrated grounds, the church must give permission for it to be exhumed in the form of a Faculty.
The table below sets out the Authority requirements.
