    Grief - more forum police??

    No wonder people are put off posting....

    I said it reminded me.... just because someone else posted it before doesn't mean I can't do it too.

    Look, that's what undertakers are for. Presumably you the family will have a general idea of which of the local undertakers you prefer so just drop in and discuss the problem with them. Undertakers do this sort of thing all the time, know what paperwork is needed and can liase directly with hospitals etc to arrange the pack-up of bodies and transport. They don't take the coffin to even the local hospital, you know, the body gets brought to the undertakers in a body bag and temporary transport box and prepared there. It's very wise of you to think of all this up front rather than scrabble around in a hurry, but I don't think this is a place where money is going to be the most important factor. I've got a Mondeo Estate but I don't think I would fancy driving it 100 miles with my late mum in the back! I expect it will be cheaper to add this service on to an already paid for funeral than as a stand alone, so make the first stop the undertakers. They'll be happy to advise, I'm sure. it's their job after all!

    I beg your pardon: you appeared to be asking a question, I tried to answer it, I didn't say you shouldn't have posted, did I?

    In fairness I didnt take Savysues post that way, to me it seemed you posted, paddedjohn suggested you look back at another post, you asked why and savysue answered that question. If you are miffed about this perhaps it should have been directed at paddedjohn and not Savy?

    My husband was in the funeral business and he says that:

    1. no you don't have to pay each county you go through.
    2. anyone can move a body providing you have the relevant paperwork.
