Earlier this week, it was reported that John Shepherd-Barron, the inventor of the Automatic Telling Machine (ATM), had died.
His funeral was held yesterday, and he had chosen to be cremated.
However, the ceremony did not go smoothly.
The minister taking the service had come to the end of the eulogy, and pressed the button to close the ceremony.
Instead of the curtains closing and the coffin being rolled into the furnace, a message was displayed on a screen in the crematorium.
The message read 'Would you like a receipt?'
Attendees at the ceremony hurriedly searched the crematorium for the button to press to send Mr Shepherd-Barron on his way.
