Funeral broadcasting

A crematorium in Lancashire is to broadcast funerals live on the internet for mourners who are unable to attend.

Bosses also intend to install a big screen and state-of-the-art music system for grieving friends and family to watch and listen to the service from the outside the chapel when it is full.

The new plans will allow mourners living thousands of miles away to still pay their respects and watch the service on the internet.

And with the new sound system, relatives will be able to choose from thousands of songs and pieces of music as they say goodbye to their loved one.

The minister will control the music at the service using a touch-screen system and the words can be flashed onto a nearby screen.

The £25,000 improvements at Burnley Crematorium will begin later this year.
