"Dealing with the Dead - Sentiment versus Efficiency. Now and in the Future" How a society views death and how it deals with the practical problem of what to do with its dead is very revealing. There are always Philosophical and attitudinal issues around disposal of the dead, but at least as important are the practical matters relating to Public Health and Finance.

The aim is to explore some of the Medical and Social implications and the very wide spectrum of possibilities in relation to bodily disposal. Starting with a brief look at the past and then moving on to the present day and with a glimpse of potential future choices.
