The handsome chariot pictured above is a mobile crematorium. It is reckoned to have been developed for FEMA in case of disaster.

Would it not serve just as well for scattered rural populations in Wales and Scotland?

I don’t think those two gas bottles at the front will last long?

Looks like something designed for swift air-carriage for victims of ebola or other such fatal conditions…. you take the crem to the victim, not t’other way round!

Bloomin’ materialists!

Where’s the parallel commitment to emergency ritualists?

Despite the risk of disease and dismay, would it not have been preferable to bury the Belsen dead with ceremony rather than simply with bulldozers?

I like the suggestion, Kathryn – a sort of dicky seat for the attached ritualist?
