Depends on the cemetery. Some will allow you to do just about anything. Others have very strict rules.

Its not hard to make a simple but elegant casket and you can buy all the hardware/handles off ebay.


Yes, they're not hard to make for anyone with even a little bit of woodworking skill, and it will save you a ton of money. The only thing you have to be careful of is the ceneterys rules. If they require a vault, you need to find out the measurements so you can plan accordingly. It's illegal here to refuse an outside casket so the funeral home has to accept it as long as it meets their guidelines.

How can I get legally pickled for my fans to enjoy?

As a note, I am already drunk.

I'm an embalmer in California and have been in the funeral industry for 7 years now. I know there's got to be some interesting questions. Cool

Is it true that dead bodies are stored with no respect. Like caskets left half open, piled on top of one another, caskets getting misplaced etc. I saw a video about it on YouTube.

RE: Ask a mortician
Is there anywhere you know of that sky burials are legal? I think it's still done on some native reservations, but, I would have no rights to be buried there. Like many, I really would like my body to go back to nature.

You can lead a theist to reason, but, you cannot make him think.

Do your customers ever complain?

Seriously, who do you consider a customer? Dead person or relatives (or whoever pays for the service ) ?

You do not have to be in a casket to be cremated, at least nowhere in the states that I know of. You have to have some sort of combustible container, though, as human remains won't readily burn by themselves. Our standard for direct cremations is called an alternative container, and is basically a large cardboard box.

And this thread reminds me of one of my all time favorite viddies. Big Grin




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
