Must be common enough that it warrants guidelines from the government department though?

Cremate my body, snappy 15 minute powerpoint presentation detailing my life and off to a bar to get drunk.

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Badgers maybe?
I'm sure I won't be picky at the time

Might be a bit easier for the family to take too. The mother is half badger on her father's side so she'd be delighted.

Whatever is the most environmental way. Last I heard it was a form of freeze drying. Cremation is pretty bad for the environment.

Cremation for myself and the family and ashes thrown off Cliffs of Moher etc.
No mass for myself or any of that nonsense.
Then again I'll be dead so it won't be as if I care anymore if someone decides to hell with him and his last wishes.

I think you need to be 3 miles out to legally scatter ashes.

I expect if you spoke to a funeral home in a seaside town, they'd probably have done one or at least be familiar with it.

Even if that is the case, who's going to know?

Classy!
I'd like to be cremated but I'd prefer it to be above board.

Local Gardai are looking into it.

Anyone interested in funerals, funeral homes, preparing bodies, burial laws etc then I'd highly recommend following Ask a Mortician on YouTube.

Just one of her clips, she's brilliant and very funny.

Yeah I've watched her before, she's really good.

Love getting an insight into what goes on in the funeral business. Some of the things they see.
