Cremation Regulations 2008

The Cremation Regulations 2008 came into effect on 1 January 2009. They modernise and consolidate all previous regulations, replacing the Cremation Regulations 1930 as amended. There are in total 13 forms which can be downloaded from theĀ Ministry Of Justice.

A countersignature on the application form is no longer required and applicants now have the right to inspect the medical forms before the medical referee authorises the cremation.

Where a post-mortem examination is requested by the medical referee, the applicant should, on request, be able to have a copy of the post mortem examination report.

The forms also make it clear that it is a criminal offence under the Cremation Act 1902 to wilfully make a false statement in order to procure a cremation.
