I have, in ten days, been to three funerals, two in crematoria and one in a church.. The crematoria ones were very different, one was religous, Church of Scotland, the other secular, the family vehemently non-religous. The other was in a Catholic church, very traditional, a partly sung liturgy, responses from the congregation (with lots of signs of the cross). It was by far the best one. Beautiful, moving and comforting. It's easy to mock the church, paedo priests, hypocrisy etc. but they are bloody good at weddings, christenings and death.
