That sounds a bit excessive. Are you sure it all went into the cremation oven?

 

As a point of interest, where did you get all the containers from?

Last cremation I went to, the mourners were asked for 100 baht each for charcoal. Strange that, it was a gas-fired kiln. 

 

And by the way, the plural of "crematorium" is "crematoria".

A new crematorium standard takes effect today to protect the environment and reduce smoke

Oh really!!

Where I lived among the mountains of Lanna in North Thailand, the official crematorium site was outside the village where a brick structure containing logs was used. The coffin was placed on the logs. Wooden buildings at a distance housed the monks and mourners. (stock photo)

I paid Bt3oo for charcoal  for a young man's cremation over twenty years ago at a Catholic run HIV centre.

I don't mind the occasional bit of smoke from the crematorium. I just wish their filter would filter out of the air the bits of ash landing a mile away ! God knows who's landing on me

Surely it would be a nice thought to end on..... that your final effect in this life would be to smear your neighbour's laundry......

Jeez, talk about being pedantic! That's the 1st in my life I've encountered that word and probably the last time as well.
