BBC NEWS | England | Manchester | Plan to recycle crematorium heat
A crematorium in Greater Manchester is proposing to recycle the heat generated when its furnaces are cremating people's remains.
Excess heats is produced by special equipment to filter emissions, such as mercury from people's fillings at Dukinfield Crematorium.
Tameside Council believes that this extra heat could be used to warm the crematorium's chapel.

The heat from the furnaces of the two crematoria in Helsingborg and Boras in Sweden is being piped directly to district energy companies. One local energy company heats 60,000 homes and estimates the crematoria have supplied about 10 percent of its needs.
How many people are they burning?
