Funeral planning for couples

Unread postby samstamport » 6 May 2022, 19:16

Can anyone refer me to online resources for funeral planning for gay couples?

I may be wrong, but I think the most inexpensive funeral is to donate my body to science. That way only a remembrance service is required. If this is correct how much does the service alone cost?

Thanks for any guidance you can give me.

Is the cost of dealing with a corpse more or less expensive based on gender? Do you imagine you might save some money if you book as a couple and make it very clear that neither of you has a pair of tits to add weight when they need to carry you down the stairs?

Why would a funeral director specialising in gay couples need to exist?

If I’m the first one to go in a couple, I hope my other half does the sensible thing and just puts me in the garden waste bin and hopes the garbage men don’t bother checking on trash day.

This is the best I could come up with, as being something related (even if ever so slightly) to the topic at hand.

Mine is a body that should die at sea!
And have for a grave, instead of a grave
Six feet deep and the length of me,
All the water that is under the wave!
And terrible fishes to seize my flesh,
Such as a living man might fear,
And eat me while I am firm and fresh,—
Not wait till I've been dead for a year!

A silly poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay. But, yeah, that's honestly the best I can manage here.
