The New Natural Death Handbook
The completely revised and expanded third edition, an essential manual for dealing with death: either one's own or that of friends and family
Today, an increasing number of people want to organise at least part of a funeral for themselves, without depending on funeral directors.The New Natural Death Handbook shows you how to do everything from ordering a coffin to hiring a horse-drawn hearse to finding a woodland burial ground (where a tree is planted for each grave instead of having a headstone). It also explains how to arrange a burial on private land and how to set up a woodland burial ground as a business or charity.
