- I don't want to be cremated.
- I don't want to be embalmed.
- I want to be buried in a shallow grave (one metre deep).
- I want to be buried horizontally (so far as I know, there aren't vertical graves available in NZ, but just in case).
- I would prefer a pine coffin from the fella in Kimbolton who makes eco-friendly caskets.
- If my family want to have my funeral at a church, I don't care. If it makes them feel better, then do it. Just don't try to make out that I believed in God.
- I don't want the cost of my funeral, burial etc to run over the cost of what's in my savings account. I don't see why anyone else should have to pay for me dying.
