Who we are
The National Burial Council is the umbrella organisation that incorporates the majority of providers of burial and funeral services to the Muslim community across the UK.
Our executive committee is made up of a team of Regional Leads, who work with the vast majority of funeral providers, burial sites and mosques in their respected area. The executive committee work alongside a Shura panel of scholars for Islamic guidance and has recently been joined by advisors specifically for the Covid-19 pandemic response.
We are the lead organisation working with Public Health England to represent the interests of the Muslim community with regards to burials due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
