Council Bereavement Service awarded coverted charter
The Bereavement Service at Barking and Dagenham Council has been bestowed with a prestigious status by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM).
The Charter for the Bereaved status was established by the ICCM, an organisation that works on developing and improving the standard of bereavement services service for the industry.
In order to receive the status, the borough’s Bereavement Service had to prove that it satisfied the basic charter rights connected with funerals.
Cllr Bert Collins, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “I am delighted that the Bereavement Service has received the status and has been recognised for the excellent service they provide.
“I would like to thank everyone involved in the service for their hard work and dedication.
