    yeah but in my family's culture it's tradition to release the ashes somewhere...if i was in india it would be the river ganges, here it'd probably be the irish sea or something lol

    I'd be buried with a sword, maybe a small shield as well, and a couple of daggers, so if theres some after life or something, i'm totally kitted up for it!

    I think i would either like to be cremated as i don't like the idea of bugs crawling all over me, mind you, you wouldn't care when your dead would you? lol...
    Either that or have a plant planted over my grave, like a rose bush or something....

    Considered cryogenics for a brief time, but came to the conclusion did I really want to be brought back to life if science ever progressed that far in a hundred years time and not know anything about the world I was rejoining. So would have to join with others on being cremated.

    I'm having a willow coffin and being burried in a woodland burial site. So there will be no grave stone to mark where I'm burried but there will be trees and grass so if any of my friends / relatives want to visit my grave they will have somewhere beautiful to visit.

    I sort of like the idea that my body will be fertilizer for a forest and not having a negative impact on the enviroment.

    I have to wait a few years though until my local council sets up a woodland burial site, otherwise I think I have to be burried in Wales.

    I wouldn't like that, it's the idea of coming back knowing that all relatives will be long gone by then and all your friends. You would be totally alone and also the change in technonlogy, it will be like an alien world, think how much the world has changed in the past 20-30 years? I don't think i would be able to handle it...

    Id be interested to see if the world had progressed, but to actually live in it? have to agree with you. Friends and family are all important

    I want to be Cremated because land is for the living not for the dead. It is important to go out with a bang and I'll think I will have a mini speech read out.

    If at all possible, I'd want all my organs to go to people who needed them (and then the left over bits could be buried...I don't really care)....but as I'm not planning to die in a car crash any time soon, but instead when I'm really old, in my sleep, I don't think my organs would be much use to anyone....so a plain old burial would be fine

    Donate my body for medical research and organ donation and when they are done with it I want to have one of those natural burials where they bury you in a biodegreadable coffin in a wood under a tree.
