This second edition (publised 2011) now includes the full texts of the funeral psalms, together with the traditional language marriage service and the traditional language funeral service.
If you're training to be ordained, you will need one of these. If you're already an ordained priest in the Church of England you will already have one (or the earlier edition, which was a black hardback).
Remember - a BLACK hardback indicates first edition, the second edition is a GREEN hardback book.

If you need resources for conducting a range of services in an Anglican tradition for bereaved people, you won't do better than this. A purple paperback offprint containing *just* the funeral services is also available, but I feel that the gravitas required on such an occasion demands that I be found holding a proper - and well bound - hardback book. The book also contains liturgies for wholeness and healing, marriage and emergency baptism. The Methodist Worship Book is better set out in that it's much easier just to follow a service through without jumping from page to page - but this is much better than what I feared I might have to use when officiating in an Anglican tradition.
