(that's crematoriums if you want to be posh)

I may be wrong but I don't think anyone has yet posted a crematorium on this forum. I think we need to because some have CWGC listed cremations and crematoria have various ways of recording this. Warriston (in Edinburgh) has a memorial wall I think and quite a number of CWGC listed graves and cremations.

Loch Roucan (Dumfries) has no CWGC listed cremations but I popped in today to see what they have. There is a memorial book which is in a locked cabinet with a page of the day on display. There is also a computer roll of honour type thing with a touch screen and having a quick flick through I can see there are some entries that record military service.

Ideally I would like access to the book to photograph all the relevant pages and post those but failing that perhaps a photograph (or transcription) of the computer screen would do.

Does anyone have any other thoughts?

Thanks Anne, now that you have reminded me, I do remember seeing it. Dumfries (and I suspect others) are much newer and have no memorial wall or brass plaques, the only thing allowed is the book of remembrance and its electronic equivalent. Any thoughts on how to post these?

I would think all you could really do would be to post a general photo of the surroundings along with any blurb on the place, then info on each individual.

As you said, there are listings on CWGC for crematoriums so after those individuals were listed, just move onto a 'date' order rather than an alphabetical one?
