Historian of Brookwood Cemetery
It shows that today's funerals are much more likely to be a celebration of a person's life than a mournful occasion. More than half the population would choose this rather than a simple church service with hymns, and almost half are keen for their funeral to reflect their favourite hobby, colour, football team or music. You can read a summary of the report in the Funeral Service Journal, or see the full report here.
