The Bournemouth Joy of Death Festival 2012 was a great success.
We got extensive coverage in the media and over 100 people attended the first UK Funeral Awards ceremony which we held in the Greenhouse Hotel.
Sky TV will broadcast a documentary about the funeral awards in 2013, so look out for that.
Meanwhile, we have changed the name of the weekend to the Good Funeral Awards because several people complained that there was no joy in death or bereavement.
Grief specialist, Kristie West, gave this address on the subject

David: Well, what am I supposed to do?

David: It can't be that simple.
Nathaniel Sr: [putting his arm around David and pulling him closer] What if it is?
