Episode 6: Funerals, Funeral Directors and Forward Planning

17/08/2017 1:56 pm

Today's Art of Dying Well podcast looks at the world of the funeral director - looking after families and final wishes in the immediate aftermath of the death of a loved one. Not an easy job. Paul Allcock is our main studio guest. Paul's family-run independent business offers funeral services for the people of Norwich and the surrounding areas. We talk about the advantages of planning ahead, children at funerals, the pressures of the job and being buried in your football kit!

'Death Chatter' follows the theme and asks 'Funeral Directors - Who Cares?'.

We finish with 'The View from the Chaplain's Chair'. Our guest is the excellent Rev Andrew Goodhead from St Christopher's Hospice in Sydenham, South East London. We talk about modern trends in terms of funerals, thanksgivings and memorials.

Duration: 34m 13s
