The physical business of funerals is unsatisfactory for many reasons. This book gives details of how various aspects may be varied from undertakers' routines. For example it is not obligatory to be embalmed. This means that instead of staying in a coffin saturated with formaldehyde indefinitely, the body will break down and rejoin the creative process naturally. This book also gives details, names, addresses and telephone numbers of green funeral sites - have a tree instead of a tombstone - and suppliers of shrouds and cardboard coffins. It tells in detail how to draw up a 'living will' so that your friends and relations will not be burdened with these arrangements which may well be considered unusual and therefore undesirable by the Death Establishment.
