It is surprising in this day and age to find so little is known of the detailed problems bereavement brings. Funeral customs vary greatly all over the world, but largely they have become what they are because people have decided for themselves the manner in which they wish to honour their departed ones. There seems to be a reluctance to enquire beforehand about the facts surrounding death, although it is one of the most natural happenings in life. Because of that reluctance, additional grief and mental anguish are often added to the sorrow which naturally accompanies bereavement, whether it be sudden or expected.
