Funerals are changing dramatically, and Northern Ireland is not immune to this. Increased demands for greater choice, a gradual movement away from the ‘traditional’ ceremony, and the growing debate around the environmental impact of funerals will influence burial and cremation here in the future. As calls increase for cremation to be more widely available, we will discuss both the challenges and opportunities that this presents. The one-day seminar will also cover new methods of bodily disposal entering the funeral scene; new technologies; and will address the green burial debate.
Who should attend?
Funeral service professionals; representatives from local councils and local government; crematoria and cemetery managers; bereavement groups; those working in the death care industry.
