Council To Heat Swimming Pool From Nearby Crematorium Trade

Recommended Posts

Sounds like a good plan to me. Not sure about the token 'global warming' angle - but I imagine they use that as an extra sales pitch. I just think the general idea makes sense - from a simple common sense point of view.

If you agree to be cremated then why would you have a problem with your heat being used ?! Who gives a ****** !! When I am dead and someone wants to use me for heat to boil up some bovril - fire away. I will be dead and wont really give a ****** !!

Great idea, but, pardon me for questioning a sustainable use of our deceased brothers and sisters. In order to save £14,500 a year, the article is eerily quiet on how much the conversion will cost.ph34r.gif

The pool manager was ashen faced when she heard the news and was quoted in the local press

"These cut backs are making my blood boil, It'll go ahead over my dead body!!"

At least they're not powering the jacuuzzi by throwing the epileptics in and flashing a torch in their eyes.

yes, it was...very wrong...a torch has sharp edges and the epileptics could easily injure themselves.

Actually they could use the gases of the burning corpses to create bubbles but the smell may put some off. If they have a back log of cremations they could throw a few stiffs in the pool for childrens fun hour on saturday . Save a fortune and the enviroment avoiding expensive Foam and plastic floaties.

Hope they're not using a condensing boiler.

IIRC, it takes a lot of heat to cremate bodies, cremation kilns are usually gas fired. Sounds a sensible if macabre idea to use the waste heat.

Sounds like there may be an opportunity here for a low-outlay smoked salmon/kipper operation.

I am suprised it's not been done before... Think I have discussed it in past with a funeral director...

I don't see how it's macabre though - any more than organ donation is macabre!
