You're a good chap.
Our Dad always loved fishing So after his Funeral he was interred in the Canal (His ashes!)
FIL is 50% in a Welsh beach the other half in the garage (waiting to go to Dovedale)
My younger brother died a few years ago The Minister said any family members who wished could leave a personal tribute on the coffin.
Other brother left a Northern Soul tribute Mod stickers and a model scooter. I left a windscreen wiper ?
He always came round if he needed car parts then he used to moan if he couldn’t fit them! (It usually took seconds!)
So I thought he would have loved it!
He had a great Northern Soul send-off! He departed dressed in his "Wigan Casino Gear"
That sounds great.
Agree completely with @Gadget. Shroud or a cardboard or wicker coffin, stepson can hire a mini JCB to dig a hole and then plant a native tree or shrub on top of the grave when filled in. There are places where you can do that. Water hydrolysis would be fine as an alternative. People might get a bit upset if you tried excarnation. Problem with cremation is that it uses a lot of energy and produces a lot of greenhouse gases. Fairly sure that I have signed to say that my body can be used for research. When I was at school our lab tech had sold her body for medical research (she was only 22!) and every so often the research organisation would check up that she was still alive.
Yep you do have to sign up for medical research and fill in a bunch of forms. (Which I call 'croak' forms. )
"Native tree" reminds me of the many mature elm trees that I saw when I was in Brighton for three days last year.
We have one surviving mature Elm in Staffordshire, within Stafford Borough. When all around it fell, it stood firm and tall, one of only a handful that have proved resistant to the disease.
Brighton decided to instigate a protective ring around its Elm trees, responding rapidly to destroy and remove any trees found, or thought, to be infected. The 17,000 or so surviving Elm trees in Brighton are not immune to the disease and, sadly, their defences have been significantly breached over the last few months, putting their Elm trees at risk.
I saw mature one near Chebsey about ten years ago.
It might still be there.
That's the one, it's on the Chebsey road out of Great Bridgeford. You can see it from the main Stafford-Eccleshall Road, but go up the Chebsey road just a short way and there it is: https://firstname.lastname@example.org...fCYhhCAKbpaz3gnFqfCQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en
Yes, a real rarity nowadays.
I reported it to the conservation that deals with elms but they were already aware of it.
