Some families want to take total control of the funeral, making all the arrangements, transporting and caring for the body of the person who has died themselves, devising and holding a ceremony. We call this a ‘home funeral’. We recently visited people in the home funeral movement in California where it is a burgeoning movement. We support the idea of families taking control.
If you wish to do this, you may find our book, We Need To Talk About The Funeral, a useful resource. Click here for details.
And, of course, there is a lot of information on this website.
If you would like some advice about any aspect of a home funeral, we are happy to help and charge you an hourly rate for our time.
I found doing everything ourselves very therapeutic and uplifting. Thank you for your help. Go on encouraging green DIY burial!”
