The book sets English and Welsh funerary practice in its wider legal, national and local governance framework, including the continuing role of the Church of England. The text provides the historic context for current practice, provides data on trends in burial and cremation and examines recent developments including direct cremation and alkaline hydrolysis. The text also describes in detail a typical funeral and typical commemorative activity. Chapters also address legalities of funerary practice, explaining the concept of burial rights, the technicalities of both grave construction and the cremation process, and outlines cremation certification requirements.
