As you may be aware the Jamaat- through the excellent work of the burial committee- now has access to a Digital Autopsy facility for all deaths that require an autopsy by the coroner. This means that in most cases an invasive autopsy is avoided thereby complying with our Sharia requirements. The EC has decided to incorporate the Digital Autopsy as an additional benefit for the members of the burial fund as of 1st January 2016. The cost of such a digital imaging is £550 per person. This will mean that the annual subscription for burial will need to be increased by £5, from £40 to £45 per member. This increase will become due from 1st January 2016. Those members paying by standing order are requested to amend the amount by instructing their own bank.
