How can a funeral director charge $700 for a chipboard coffin worth only $80?

Why are there moves afoot to re-use graves in cemeteries?

Can we choose to be buried in a cardboard coffin?

Australia's 'death-care' industry is worth a staggering $700 million a year, and despite the fact that each of us will one day have to deal with those in the 'dismal trade', few of us know how the business of dying really works.

In Funeral Rights, Robert Larkins lifts the lid on what goes on inside the mortuary and behind the cemetery walls.

Eye-opening, empowering and often darkly amusing, his book demystifies death, dispels popular myths about funerals, and shows us better ways of conducting our final acts of love.

Price: $32.95
