My uncle was a nudist; he recently died and, as such, is going to need a funeral.
I think the family should respect his nudism and have him without clothes in the casket, with a fig tastefully and comically arranged to protect the innocent ... but other members of the family think his beliefs don't matter anymore because he's dead and won't care whether he was buried with or without clothes.
Anyone got any input? He left the decision to the whole family (he had no wife or kids), so we have to decide one way or another. I think it might end up being clothed for the funeral, but nude for the burial, more's the pity.

I thought this thread was going to be about all the funeral guests being naked. I am disappoint.
I'd say leave him naked if that's what he liked to do when he was alive.

I think it all depends on how important you think naturism was to him. If the idea of him being buried naked offends the family, though they still accepted his naturist views and lifestyle, perhaps it could be referred to during the funeral, especially if it is a non-religious service and so there is no set format.
