Funeral etiquette

Yep. Buried in Monard as he was from that parish.

Still seems to happen out my way. Family would fill it in, and a few neighbours etc. would take over to make sure it’s done right. The direct family would be more ceremonial from what I recall from grandparents. Like each of the grandsons (only four of us) would do a small bit and pass it on to our fathers, etc. Now, my last family funeral was a good 15 years ago.

Was at a friend’s father’s funeral a couple of months ago and one of our pals filled in a fair amount.


I’ve dug em, and closed em in. A lot of Parishes not allowing it now for the usual H&S, but on the most recent occasion it wasn’t up for debate who was doing it for the man in question.

No graveyard in Monard. Solohead I presume.

I’m sure you’re right, Monard was what we always said. I’d have to look it up.

I’ve done it a few times, but like you said it’s being stopped now.
