    My finace died in an accident 4 years ago. Suddenly I had to find $6000 for a cheap funeral, I was earning $19AUD at the time. I would have had no way to pay for it if it wasn't for several generous donors. I felt completely blindsided and have since realized how much people insist it's never a polite time to talk about death and the practical considerations until you have no choice. When IS a good time?

    it's funny how death is still a massive taboo. Had a conversation about making wills and suddenly realized what a horrendous stress/ expense dying is! Yet another thing they don't teach you at school yet somehow we all need to prepare for if we don't want to give our loved ones massive stress :-/ Sad me.

    the co-operative gave me a voucher for a few hundred off a funeral plan with them...... only trouble is that it has a starting date, and an expiry date...... boy is my grandma going to be unlucky if she dies before the voucher becomes void.

    In America we have this wonderful place called The Body Farm. Not its technical name but look it up. It was actually featured in Fry's America series. Its a forensic study place where you can donate your body and its left to the elements to decompose naturally and they use it to study decomposition rates in different circumstances. No burning. No burying. Just a body left out in the woods.

    Funnily enough, they joke about the Funeral thing.. after my dad died, my mom said she didn't want us to have to deal with all the messing around she did, so she has paid for her own funeral. picked out all the bits.. so there is no financial strain, nor stress over 'what she would've wanted' as we will simply know... some people really DO like to plan ahead :P I think it's a great idea.

    Let me guess. It costs 100 pound to burn, probably 300 to bury (you have to pay the people that dig). Why is dying so expensive?
    I think it doesn't matter what happens with the dead, it's about the people that are left behind. If my insurance is worth 2500 pounds and the burial costs 1000 I want the rest to be spend on the people who attended my funeral to get drunk and think about their lives. And if there are three friends that will think about me for the rest of their lives, I think I've done well. I belong to these three now for some others that are gone.

      Fred Versteeg / thats not even a shadow of the cost in america. An obit, online obit, casket with funeral and whatnot costs 5 grand and up atleast. You can have a cremation and get a cardboard box full of a plastic bag with ashes for maybe 700$.

      Fred Versteeg it's just an actual mortician promoting death awareness, answering questions about anything to do with death, and offering information on things like natural burial on her TheXvid channel. She's trying to be entertaining to get the word out and break the taboo of talking about death. Sorry for making you feel pressured. Here's two videos where she talks about awareness and unnecessary expense:

      Sorry for your loss, I thought you were revering to a tv-show I missed. I live in the Netherlands, so lots of English and American books and tv-shows are lost on me. I hope you'll know that grieve and sadness goes along with pleasant memories, which doesn't make it easy,. (Wish I could write this in my own language, it would make it so much easier especially when it concerns these great things). Hope for the best and thank you for making me think.

      Fred Versteeg sorry I wasn't trying to preach. I thought you might be interested. She has a lot of suggestions that help people with costs and knowing what you're paying for. That's a big part of her decision to be so public. One the aims she has is to help people who have trouble affording funeral care. My father has also died and it is a really difficult time, I'm sorry for your loss.

    • Fred Versteeg
      Fred Versteeg 5 months ago +1

      I've buried my father and stepfather. I don't need tv shows or writers, priests or moviemakers or who ever to tell me about grieve sadness or mourning. I only know that I, or anyone else who lives after the death of a loved one, has to live on. And that's when you are lucky to have three friends. (Anyway, I reacted to the costs of burying or cremating, which causes a lot of problem for people who are poor.)

    They can put me in a cardboard box or flush me down the toilet when I die I will be dead who gives a fuck. You have to pay for everything else in life not paying to die as well.

    here in Denver, we have a local funeral home that does comparative pricing in a commercial on television. it usually comes on during the dinner hours 1630 - 1930, when the most old people are watching telly. Death doesn't have to be an expensive burden to your loved ones when you come to Horan McConaty, come to Olingers, come to Wren's. Die easy knowing the End is already taken care of.

      No, in this clip, they talk about the Paralympics and funeral advertisements. The clip with Tennant speaking truth about Trump was from a different part of this episode.
