All feeling a bit silly now are you?

Rupert – yes, as in the following sales pitch from their website –

’16 gauge caskets are enhanced with Batesville’s exclusive Cathodic Protection System, a scientific method that inhibits the formation of rust on outer surfaces to extend corrosion resistance by 2.5 times. In addition, a one-piece rubber gasket helps resist the entry of outside elements into the casket….’

thanks Charles, yes I felt that it was from ‘the Batesville range’, too

and mighty popular they are starting to be, particularly ‘up North’ where money is no object clearly – Jimi Heselden’s family also chose one too – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-11513177 – another who donated vast sums to Charity

I thought that it wasn’t possible to bury a Batesville in any British municipal cemeteries, due to the very think it is sold on; it’s complete refusal to yield to the elements.

well Charles, Jimmy S has now been interred and at an angle of 45 degrees to the Sea

and despite the loss, it was excellent to see that a decent independent (Joseph A Hey & Son of Bradford)were instructed (and not a corporate)- anyone have any idea of the cost of the casket? I did see one that looked fairly similar earlier today for the no small price of £24K

All Jimmy Savile’s obituaries focussed on how he was not just a rather peculiar disc jockey, but also a generous man with both money (he gave 90 per cent of his earnings away) and his energetic doing of good. However, it’s telling of our secular media that there’s no mention of his devout Catholicism and the fact he went to Mass several times a week. This is surely relevant: his Catholicism was a driving force of his goodness.
