Funerals at a Staffordshire crematorium will soon be streamed on the internet. Stafford Borough Council, which runs the crematorium on Tixall Road, said webcams were being installed in the chapel, along with a new music system.
It said mourners who were too ill or too far away to attend in person would be able to watch services by entering a Pin code. Anthony Evans from the council said internet security would prevent people from intruding on other services.
He said an 80,000-track music database would allow families to choose songs to play at funerals, without having to search for them at such a difficult time. Mr Evans said the technology would allow families to have a “more meaningful funeral”.
