arranging funerals in cambo

Post by Multipox »

What happens when someone you are concerned about dies in cambo?

This means someone you would have to arrange the funeral for.

Do you shop for the coffin? Does the coffin store arrange the funeral?

Are funeral ceremonies only done by Buddhist monks or is there a secular procedure as an alternative?

What is done with the body? Assuming the person is not a member of a religion that prescribes what should be done.

I've done 3 and never dealt with a coffin so can't answer that.
All of ours have been cremation. Collect the ashes the next day to scatter in the river.
There are several Christian cemeteries around as well though if that's what your after.
