A DVD of your funeral, I don't believe it!

Seems to be true though as it's on offer from my nearest crematorium, along with live streaming of the event - and all mine for just £135.

Mind you, at my age most of my friends are still struggling to work a VCR never mind webcams and digital players!

Seems a bit extravagant, and expensive, for something you will never see ....  Give the money to the R.N.L.I. instead... at least they will be able to use it to save lives....

A fraudulent offer, unless they follow the process right to the end. I guess there's no burning ambition for that.Roll eyesCrazy

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

@twocvbloke I find your post a little "disturbing".... how on earth, ( or in heaven, as the case may be )... can YOU , make a DVD of YOUR funeral, AND make money from it,... ?

 

Your relatives/friends/enemies. may be able to,.... by YOU certainly won`t make any money.....

Simples, you put it in your will and then people do it for you after you're gone, and if they go against your will then you haunt them for the rest of their lives... Funny

I wonder if they'll urn much money from this idea or have they simply lost the plot?

It's a matter of grave concern.
