Monopoly busting Hargreaves takes on Norwood Park

By johnboy 7 May 2007 22

It has been noted that the only obstacle to sensible, low cost cardboard coffins for cremation has been Norwood Park crematorium which profits mightily by clipping the tickets of all Canberrans seeking cremation as they pass into the hereafter.

The Canberra Times has the good news that John Hargreaves has let it be known that he’s planning to introduce a second crematorium, possibly in Tuggeranong, to bring some much needed competition to this essential service.

Mr Hargreaves said opening a second crematorium would improve standards, services and presentation. Prices should stabilise or come down.

We know the law was changed recently to allow it.

If there is still legal prohibition of the burning of cardboard coffins, as stated by Saskia, how could Norwood Park now be burning them. How do we know what is true?
