HC Deb 11 May 1905 vol 146 c47
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether there is any official list of the private burying grounds in connection with monastic and conventual institutions; and, if so, what is their number and how many have been granted during the past five years.

MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)

Can the right hon. Gentleman say what country is referred to in the Question.


I can only speak as far as England and Wales are concerned. I am not aware of the existence of any such list as regards England and Wales, and I am informed by the President of the Local Government Board, with whom, since the passing of the Burial Act, 1900, rests the duty of giving approval, when approval is required, to the opening of new burial grounds, that he has no record of the nature indicated.
