First cremation in England

In 1885, the first cremation in England took place at Woking, where a crematorium was built. The deceased was a Mrs Jeannette C. Pickersgill, a well-known figure in literary and scientific circles. By year's end, only 3 cremations took place out of 597,357 deaths in the UK. The crematorium was founded in 1878, when a piece of land was bought by Sir Henry Thompson, surgeon to Queen Victoria and founder of The Cremation Society. By 1901, with 6 crematoria established, only 427 cremations took place out of 551,585 deaths - less than one-tenth percent. However, by the end of the century (2000), over 240 crematoria were in use. Over 70% of the deceased were cremated (437,609 out of 611,960 deaths).[Image: Crematorium, early 19th century]
