Webcast service for crem

GRIEVING friends and relatives can now attend the funeral of a loved in at Bramcote Crematorioum from anywhere in the world thanks to an internet broadcast service.

The crematorium used by Erewash and Broxtowe borough councils is one of the first in the East Midlands to offer the facility and has held five broadcasts so far, allowing people to take part from Thailand and Tasmania so far.

Family and friends with access to the internet can go online from anywhere in the world to watch a service in real-time or whenever is convenient up to 10 days after a ceremony has taken place and even participate in the event.

Leader of Erewash Borough Council Cllr Chris Corbett said: “It will, I’m sure, bring great comfort to those unable to attend a funeral.”

The service costs £36.
