Every culture has its own funeral traditions. There is something deeply philosophical in the way Buddhist funerals treat death as a natural part of life’s continual repeating cycle. There is something wonderfully humanistic in the way Jewish funerals traditionally involve all family members symbolically helping to bury their own. And, likewise from funeral pyres for ancient Greek heroes to modern crematory techniques, cremation is moving way to honour the dead. While, as Shakespeare put it in Cymbeline, “Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust”, the sombre yet celebratory beauty of symbolic cremation assures us that, when faced with mortality, we need “Fear no more”.
