Alison was fortunate enough to meet the creator of Natural Burials Mr Ken West MBE last week when he launched his new book R.I.P Off! at the ICCM meeting at Forest Pines. Mr West developed the first green burial cemetery in the UK in Carlisle in 1993 and has been a pioneer ever since.
The book is a satirical look at the Funeral Industry and having been involved with over 100,000 funerals, and keeping detailed diaries of incidents that truly happened to him, Ken West has become somewhat of an expert on the matter. R.I.P. Off! provides a unique insight into the world of death and funerals that readers cannot gain by any other means.
