  • Funerary customs comprise the complex of beliefs and practices used by a culture to remember and respect the dead, from interment itself, to various monumentsprayers, and ritualsundertaken in their honor. Customs vary widely both between cultures and between religious groups and denominations within cultures. 

    To help us better understand  we've added a new section about "Death and Funeral Customs" to the Information Website. The intent is to provide you, especially those of you working in multicultural communities,  with information about death customs practiced by different religions and communities.. 

  • bubble-man-search-world2.pngA couple of new pages to help you find online resources related to the governance, administration and control of cemeteries & crematoria have been added to the Information Website. We hope you'll find this non tracking and non-intrusive approach useful next time you need to rummage around the web to find resources for your cemetery or crematorium
