Council offers streaming service for funerals

A crematorium is offering an online service to people who want to watch funeral services online.

Colwyn Bay Crematorium, which is operated by Conwy Council, is offering the service to family and friends who are unable to travel to the location of the funeral.

It can only be accessed through a secure password-protected website, with unlimited access for the authorised members to watch online for a week after the service.

The camera is situated, out of view, at the rear of the main chapel. It is positioned to capture the service, coffin and congregation and CD or DVD recordings can be purchased.
