On the same date, it was resolved that Mr. Spencer be appointed to clean the Mortuary, and that he receive 1s. per week extra for doing same.

On the 3rd October 1935, the Surveyor reported that, as instructed, he had communicated with Blackburn Corporation Electricity Undertaking regarding the lighting of the Mortuary by electricity, and presented to the Council Committee a quotation dated 23rd September from the Undertaking. The quotation was accepted, and the Surveyor was instructed to arrange for the work to be put in hand.

The Council Clerk reported that he had received an account from the Watch Committee of the Blackburn Corporation on the 6th August 1936, for the use of the ambulance in conveying a body from Higher Cunliffe Delph to the Mortuary in Rishton and that he had forwarded same to the County Coroner, who had returned same. A copy of the letter was forwarded to Blackburn.
