This book was first published in 1991, and demand was so high when it went out-of-print, that she made it available for copying and distribution by The Celebrant School. This extremely thorough resource is a funeral classic, covers everything from the historic antecedents of the contemporary funeral, through funerals vs memorials, lowering vs not lowering the casket, considerations around death notices in newspapers, a sample funeral, readings and much more.
A highly recommended resource, this is copied and spiral bound.
