HC Deb 07 May 1858 vol 150 c250

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department what regulations or instructions as to Cemeteries or Burial Grounds in the Metropolis have been, or are to be, issued under the powers of the Burial Act passed last Session.


said, that no regulations of any description had as yet been issued upon the subject, nor had any been prepared. The matter, however, was under the consideration of the Inspectors of Burial Grounds, and any regulations which they might frame with respect to it would be weighed, before they were issued, with due deliberation by his right hon. Friend at the head of the Home Department.
