THE heating system has now been fixed at the Isle of Wight Crematorium — following a break down last week.

Services were held on Friday and over the weekend in the crematorium chapel, just off the Racecourse Roundabout, near Whippingham, with no heating.

After scheduled repairs however, the council has confirmed the issue has been fixed as expected and services will continue with heat.

At the time a council spokesperson apologised for the break down.

They said: “Regretfully, a fault has developed with the building's heating system, and the council apologies for any discomfort at what will be a difficult time for visitors to the chapel.

“Engineers have attended and identified the issue, ordered a replacement part and will return with the intention to restore the heating.

“Apart from the issue with the heating, everything is working normally.”
