PostSubject: The Cremation Act   Tue Jan 18, 2011 12:44 pm

The Cremation Act 1902 (2 Edw 7 c. Cool was an Act of Parliament of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, given the royal assent on 22 July 1902. The major purpose of the Act was to allow burial authorities to establish crematoria. Later versions of the Act were used to outlaw open air cremations using funeral pyres, although in 2010 the Court of Appeal ruled this practice to be legal under certain circumstances.
