Britain to expand its crematoria to cater to Hindu, Sikh funeral needs

London, UK: There have been some growing complaints from the Hindu and Sikh communities regarding the crematoria facilities across Britain.

One of the complaints is about the inept training given to the crematorium staff in accordance to the ‘cultural sensitivities of different faiths at a difficult time for mourners’.

On 16th March, the Government of Britain made the declaration of the revision of the policies concerning the crematoria provision which will continue until May 26.

The decision was taken when it surfaced that the cost of a cremation in Britain has raised one-fifth during the last five years.

And now, the average expense stands at that of £640, whereas it was £480 back in 2010. One of the most astonishing facts is that some localities like that of Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria charge as much as an alarming £721 for cremating an adult.

It is known that sometimes crematoria can be run by a private firm while at other instances more than 170 local authorities can look after only one such site.

The Government after seeking the consultation from diverse cultural groups, local authorities and private firms found that the general opinion is that:

‘Some faith groups have said that crematoria staff need better training to ensure that they are culturally aware and sensitive to different faiths at a difficult time for mourners’. (Inputs from mailonsunday.co.uk/)
