Laid to rest on the cheap
How about an article on the funeral options in France?
I am in the process of trying to persuade the CHU Caen to accept my body for the benefit of trainee doctors... the deal includes a free barbecue!
In Great Britain there is a system of totally basic body disposal, no “mourners” and it costs very little. Perhaps The Connexion could research cheap body disposal options
I realise people have to make a living, but taking a body in a cheap body bag to the local crematorium in a basic van should not cost more than a maximum of €1,000... (allowing for 100% profit!)
Just in passing, I do not understand why French people are so disparaging about civil servants. I can only think of one occasion in 28 years when I have received other than excellent, ‘sympa’ service. Thank you, France, for having me.
