More and more people today want to organise at least part of a funeral for themselves, without depending on funeral directors. The Natural Death Handbook shows you how to do everything from ordering a coffin to hiring a horse-drawn hearse to finding a woodland burial ground (where a tree is planted for each grave instead of having a headstone). It also explains how to arrange a burial on private land and how to set up a woodland burial ground as a business or charity.
For those who prefer a funeral to be organised for them, the book's Good Funeral Guide details 'best buys' throughout the UK, and how to bring the price down to less than a third of the usual average price.'Gives excellent advice' Cosmopolitan'If you want to die with dignity and a modicum of grace, invest in a copy of the reassuring and practical Natural Death Handbook' Spectator'From the spiritual and mystical to the practical and administrative, vital information is included on how to organise a funeral, how to care for someone dying at home and how to come to terms with bereavement.'
