Anstey v Mundle and another

Burial – Burial rights. The Chancery Division held that, on the facts, it would be most proper for the deceased's body to be buried in Jamaica, rather than England. However, in the light of the authorities, the court could not determine or direct where or how the deceased would be buried, but could direct who had the power and duty to bury the deceased. Accordingly, it was ordered that the duty would be imposed on the deceased's daughter who was more able to give effect to a Jamaican burial.
