I may be told by the monitor that this topic is not some thing that should be discussed here. If that is the case I will accept it and apologise.
As i am in my 70s and my wife has recently been seriously ill but has recovered I have been thinking about funerals. Funerals can cost a lot of money. I had been thinking of a woodland burial . The cost of a plot near here would be £1350 plus maintenance of the site. Then there would be the costs of the undertaker and transport to the site. So now i am inclined to a simple cremation with out a funeral. Later having a memorial meeting at the meeting house-we are Quakers-. Afterwards some refreshments including some wine for those who want it some wine . My choice would cut out the normal undertaker costs and it would not involve people having to travel in cars to the burial site.
