Exhumation Licences

Licences issued on behalf of the Secretary of State giving permission to exhume remains are not made publicly available.

Anyone looking for a specific licence, will need to submit a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to the Data Access and Compliance Unit at data.access@justice.gsi.gov.uk.

For information about where an individual was reburied following an exhumation, try contacting the relevant burial authority who may be able to provide this information.
