Ap­plaud­ing Crem ef­forts

Dear Ed­i­tor

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Op­er­at­ing since the 1960s it is so ob­vi­ous that Perth’s Cre­ma­to­rium is in need of a re­vamp and that nec­es­sary equip­ment be up­graded and re­placed.

I be­lieve to­day cre­ma­tions far out­num­ber buri­als, and the Gar­den of Re­mem­brance is a very spe­cial place of peace, mem­ory and re­flec­tion amidst the sounds of na­ture within the sur­round­ing trees, where flow­ers lov­ingly laid for mem­o­ries never die.

Thanks must go to the Cre­ma­to­rium staff and those who tend to the gar­dens for their ded­i­ca­tion, and to those who have and con­tinue to of­fer their ser­vices whilst the Cre­ma­to­rium Chapel is closed, of­fer­ing both re­li­gious and non-re­li­gious ser­vices un­til the Perth fa­cil­i­ties re­sume for years to come.
