Does the berkshire burial index include cremations or is it just burials?

Hi,

As far as I can see, it only contains cremations in Reading/Caversham Henley Road Crematorium from about 1932.

There aren't many crematoriums (cremetoria?) in Berkshire. The Reading one is the oldest by far. Thatcham (West Berkshire Crematorium) is only 10 years old, not sure about the one in Easthampstead.  And Slough isn't really in Berkshire is it?
