If, as research suggests, the carbon costs of cremation per body, (exclusive of transport, and carbon costs of construction of the crematorium) are around the equivalent of 500 road miles of driving, and accepting R.B.C. estimated numbers as 1000 per annum, this is representative of an eye-watering half amillion fuel miles of released carbon. Hardly a green option then. Vote green when you die, get buried. Vote green in Paddox if you reject the notion of a crematorium on Paddox fields.
