Human remains in England Licencing update

Home/Blog/Human remains in England Licencing update

Ministry of Justice after consideration  has determined that the 1857 Act allows more flexibility over reburial of excavated human remains than was thought in 2007.

‘It is therefore prepared to grant licences without a reburial condition where appropriate arrangements are made for the long-term retention of the remains for research and display in a museum or other appropriate institution’

New application forms are available by contacting the MOJ.
