“The aims of the provisions of the Cremation Act 1902 were to ensure that cremations were subject to uniform rules throughout the country, to enable the Secretary of State to regulate the manner and places in which cremations were carried out, to require a crematorium to be a building which was appropriately equipped and to ensure that a crematorium was not located near homes or roads. Further, the Act envisaged that crematoria would be constructed, so that, provided a structure was relatively permanent and substantial so that it could properly be said to have been constructed and provided it could normally be so described, the structure would be a ‘building’ within s 2 giving that word its natural and wide meaning.”
