This standard textbook on the subject has been fully revised to take account of the many changes in law and practice that have occurred since the last edition.
Of particular note are the regulations that relate to the cremation of body parts, the consequences of the Dr Shipman case and various matters associated with coroners and death certification generally. Many other topical issues are addressed, such as the disposal of foetal remains and the Office of Fair Trading Report Funerals.
The book remains comprehensive in its coverage. Part 1 deals with funeral arrangements including general requirements after death, registration of deaths and still births, the disposal of bodies and the responsibility for funeral arrangements and expenses. Part 2 deals with burials, in churchyards and cemeteries, and the procedure and registration of a burial. Parts 3 and 4 cover cremation and exhumation fully. A series of Appendices gives further useful information.
This book is invaluable to all those connected with the disposal of the dead.
