Staff at this undertakers lift the coffin ready to slide it into the funeral coach. Note the spectacular floral tributes. They are not young men!

In biggery I noticed many special details, esp the age of these pallbearers. Isn't there a legend/myth about having young people carry the dead? Written in the "Popol Vuh" (Mayan) but I think Western cultures adapted rituals based solely on suspicions. Interesting.

Love the old photographs of funerals. They really knew how to show respect. You might be interested in my blog I photograph cemeteries and haunted houses. Thanx for the great pictures.

An illustrated look at the World of Graveyards and Cemeteries. There are many Stories behind the Stones that Stand in them. Who knows what we might find?
