Re JS (Disposal of Body)  EWHC 2859 (Fam)
This unusual and sad case concerns a court application by a 14 year old girl, JS. In 2015 she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer which proved terminal and, at the time of her application, she was receiving palliative care as an in-patient at a hospital. The other parties involved in the application were JS’s parents, who were acrimoniously divorced. JS had no direct contact with her father after 2008.
