Lots of people opt for a funeral outside of Church. I would hope the will of the deceased is followed. Freedom of choice seems a good thing here, to me at least.



Not in Ireland.

People must have a Church funeral in Ireland? What about Jews, Muslims, Hindus, etc.?

It is not a must Michael but it is still even though the church's power is waning a church funeral is still expected.

With a lot of families it is a question of pride. I know it sounds odd but families in Ireland still have a lot to say.

The other religions look after their own.

Thanks Scot.
