... not normally a problem as fires are part of the normal procedure at a crematorium. However what occurred at Aberdeen Crematorium was evidently not part of the usual procedure and a service at the crematorium has had to be be rescheduled for today, after the family and crematorium staff were evacuated safely.
On a personal note, I should add that my late father was cremated in Aberdeen, so whilst this story has aspects of irony, it also has a personal interest for me. I have every so often taken my mother to visit the 'Garden of Remembrance', where there is a small plaque commemorating my father, either on the anniversary of his death about 26 years ago (earlier this month), or around Christmas-time. Had he lived their 60th ('diamond') wedding anniversary would have been in early July this year.
