The Board considered an update on progress with the installation of a new cremator at Widnes Cemetery and the removal of the temporary cremator. At the previous meeting of the Board a number of public questions were submitted (Minute 28 refers). It was agreed that a report would be submitted to the June meeting to provide an update and this report provided Members with a sequence of events and timeline surrounding these matters.
Members were advised that the installation and commissioning of the new cremator was on schedule for completion by mid-July. It was therefore anticipated that the temporary cremator would be removed by the end of July 2022.
RESOLVED: That the update report be noted.
