Wirral Council introduced a 33% surcharge for coffins more than 29 inches (74cm) wide or 7ft (2.13m) long.

It follows the installation of larger cremators at Landican Crematorium.

The new surcharge will see those prices rise to between 744 and 843.

Zipperclub, you are just one 'big' showoff!

Mike, you should keep you ideas under wraps, you know what they are like.Give them an inch and they take a mile.

Already got mine sorted but, will it cost extra?

donate your body to science and they will chop you up to save the family having to do it and i think they also cremate you free of charge and you arrange to collect the ashes (or this is what i was told a few years back as a friends mum donated her body)
