I returned from the U.K. on Tuesday last having attended my brother Tom's funeral and was wondering why it takes so long
for a burial or cremation to take place over there. It took 28 days after his death to cremate him.
His wife died about 12 years ago and the same thing it took three and a half weeks from time of death to funeral.
The thing is they seem to think thats normal and we do funerals too soon after death in Ireland.
I'm thinking now maybe it is us rushing things I don't know what the time scale is in countries other than Ireland and the U.K.
Anyway Rest in Peace brother

Condolences, Jabra. Not sure about the time delay; would it be to do with sheer volume of numbers?

Seems like UK citizens are just as perplexed, Jabra:

Sorry to hear of your loss Jabra may your brother rest in peace. In Preston in usually takes 10 days and I've attended too many family funerals there. I think that is too long but maybe that's because we're use to 2 to 3 days over here.

Thanks Denis and Skins I think it is sheer volume of numbers in Leicester anyway 3 to 4 weeks seems to be the norm.

Jabra, firstly, condolences on the passing of your brother. Maybe have a look at the links above which may answer you question regarding the stressful delay in processing English burials. The citizens advice link outlines some scenarios where delays may occur. At such a sensitive family time the whole process should be cognisant of the stress loved ones endure whilst sorting out funerals and probate. This should move expeditiously but with appropriate sensitivity.

Condolences Jabra on the loss of your brother Tom. May he rest in peace. That was a nightmare having to wait 28 days for the cremation. So stressful. Nothing prepares us for the death of a brother and I hope that you are looking after yourself.

Condolences jabra,yes I often wondered too about the lenth of time it takes for the funerals in the UK I guess it's volume of deaths and paperwork postmortems and arranging slots in cemeteries/crematorium, it also crossed my mind what are greevning family members to do regards work and compassionate leave very few jobs can let staff off for such along period .

Sorry to see your sad news Jabra, may he rest in peace. The length of time taken for burial or cremation seems to be normal over there at three or four weeks. We travelled over for the death of a loved one and had to come home and then back over again for the cremation all of which cost a large sum of money, whereas if it was over 3 days like here we could have stayed.Also, the fact that the deceased was reposing in a funeral home for that length of time in an open coffin was very strange, his family were visiting him two or three times at week, I thought the whole thing was an ordeal.

Jabra, sorry for your loss, may your brother Rest in Peace.
Death of a sibling is never easy but I think the system we have in Ireland for dealing with death is far better than anywhere else. We have a short intense mourning period, celebrate the life and get all the stories and fun there has been, some of which we didn't know. On occasions an Irish funeral is better than a wedding.

Was at Joe Fogarty's funeral on Friday. Joe could always be seen outside where Cooks and the ESB shop used to be,looking straight down Marine Rd.He was very much part of the town. He worked for Briens the butcher that was located where Patrick's Street and Cross Ave. intersect. Joe delivered the orders throughout Dun Laoghaire on his bicycle for most of his working life. He was a keen sportsman and a founder member of Cross Celtic,he enjoyed a bet,a chat and a pint,but never to excess. I spoke to his brother Willie( who was one of the best footballer to come out of Dun Laoghaire) and he said that Joe had been in a nursing home in the last couple of years and would say jokingly to him the next time you come down to see me bring a gun. Joe loved Cross Celtic and was always there supporting the team,I have great memories of him on the sideline cheering us on. He never married and was 91 when he died.I'm sure, if there is a heaven, Joe will be supporting one of the football teams.May he rest in peace.

Denis, sorry to hear of Joe's death, I knew him well as he delivered meat regularly to my aunt's home.
He was always a gentleman. May he Rest in Peace.

Didn't know Joe, RIP, but remember Willie well. As Den says, one of the best footballers ever to come out of the Boro. Didn't he get an International cap?
I don't think that I once laid eyes on him after I finished school/college.....did he remain living locally?
