That will teach me to keep my big mouth shut, as last time I was in a crematorium, I moaned about being so cold and couldn’t understand why they did not use heat from the furnace to heat the room, so am all for it after all if my body can keep someone warm after my dead, at least am still doing some good :)

Makes perfect sense to me.

I dont think they do it as you wait. In fact, I think they wait until they've got a few and do them in one sitting. But, although it seems a bit of an odd idea, well, Global warming and all that. They may as well use the heat. I suppose.

When I am dead, whatever you choose to do with my body is up to you, I won't need it!

It could be viewed as the departed's final contribution to the ecological wellbeing of the planet, and as such perhaps they should be given the option. The feelings of the family have to be a serious consideration. Perhaps it could be dealt with in a similar manner to organ donation.
Most crematoriums have more than one furnace perhaps that would provide an option.
Personally it wouldnt bother me.

Whilst I will be cremated and won't worry about the aftermath, I am not sure I would want to attend a service knowing the previous departee was keeping the room heated :(

I'd be happy to be cremated there (hopefully not just yet though).

A crematorium in Greater Manchester is proposing to recycle the heat generated when its furnaces are cremating people's remains.

Good or bad idea?
