A funeral exhibition including woodcarving, floristry, stonemasonry, and calligraphy is to take place at West Suffolk Crematorium.

The exhibition on September 14, is designed both to provide information and to break down some of the taboos and myths surrounding death.

The event will also include exhibits of coffins, cars, information and advice for the bereaved, and informal memorial services.

Royna Hill, crematorium manager said she hoped to have representatives from the Institute of Civil Funerals, humanist ceremonies, Cruse bereavement care, and St Nicholas Hospice at the event.

Small groups will be taken behind the scenes to see dummy cremations.

“We know from things people have said that they have odd ideas about what happens. The truth is nobody knows what happens when the curtains close.

“We have always been open but thought having an exbition might help,” she said.

There will also be tea and cakes and a falconry display.

The event starts from 10.30am. For more information ring 01284 755118.
