longer if you walk to the graveyard.
then there's the party afterwards.
most of the day.

I missed a Smashing Pumpkins concert to go to my Grandad's funeral.
Glen_Chap, you are scum!
Some are very quick some take ages.
A cremation can be as quick as 30/40 mins, a burial takes longer!
and i can skip the "party" or wake. so would 30 mins be enough? Do you see the coffin go into a fiery pit with some tribal, drum heavy tunes in the background?

as they had her body in the casket in her house for people to come and see in the morning, then it was carried to the church.
Then the coffin was put in a hearse and we followed it to the graveyard where she was buried - that took about 45mins/an hour
then we all went and got pissed up.
it was an irish funeral though, i don't know how things work here.
i once shat on a grave.
til the funeral had finished?
