The writer Anita Brookner, who has died at the age of 87, requested that no funeral be held after her death. How common is this and what does it mean for friends and family?

When someone dies, the UK government's advice is given in three simple steps. First, get a death certificate from a GP or hospital doctor. Second, register the death. Third, arrange the funeral.

But the writer Anita Brookner, best known for her 1984 Booker Prize-winning novel Hotel du Lac, requested that step three didn't happen in her case, her death notice in the Times saying: "At Anita's request there will be no funeral." ...........

Most Funeral Directors are on a big con,   Why would you pay for expensive Coffins ? Use a few Pallets knocked together , as for a coach and Horses,just why would you pay thousands for that ? The dead don't care what you do with them . Is it all to impress the Neighbours. Take the Coffin into the Church and sing a few Dirges ,the Vicar wants paying for that,so do the Grave diggers and a few other hangers on .I want my friends to take me to the River,mix me with a bit of Groundbait and chuck me in !

Funerals are one area where Free Market economics definitely dont apply due to ' nimby- ism ' , no-one wants a new crematorium anywhere near them

The population density is a lot lower in Turkey so I suppose burials arent  much of an issue
