Subject: RE: Origins: Hiring Fair At Hamiltonsbaw: Burnhouse?
the version in the DTis supposed to be from Robin Morton's book so it's no use looking in my copy of the book because I don't see burnhouse mentioned in the DT.

How about a crematorium rather than an abattoir?
It sounds for me like the worker who was wasting away would be cremated just to get away from Tom McCann.
