Mourners unable to get to a funeral may be able to watch the ceremony via the Internet as part of a £1.4 million scheme to upgrade Park Wood crematorium at Elland, near Halifax. Cameras are planned to relay services from the small chapel to screens in an overflow waiting room – and could also be connected to the Internet with the permission of he families. Commenting on the service – which has been dubbed ‘Crem Cam’ – the vicar of Halifax, the Revd Hilary Barber said, ‘I can see this working over the internet, provided families agree. It’s a reflection of the modern world we live in.’

This should be of great comfort to families separated by distance and unable to travel home from distant places in the world.

thanks, Webcam. I appreciated your praise for my blog -and the hug, because I've had to limit my blogging after damaging my right hand in a fall while away from home. I hope to be back to normal now. It is good to communicate across the world.
