Psst – wanna burial?

A professional embalmer, Jason King, has submitted to a Scottish Government his views on burial and cremation practices.

He is quoted by The Herald in Scotland as saying: “Currently dead bodies are being embalmed anywhere…corridors, garages, sheds, in the person’s house, the funeral director’s kitchen, on stretchers, in coffins, an old door on two trestles…Although these all break current health and safety laws, it is happening on a daily basis across the country.”
