Conversation with a Funeral Director
Play • 58 min
In this episode of the Soul Garden, Georgina Langdale is joined by third generation funeral director, Terry Longley in a warm, thoughtful and informative discussion on what happens after someone dies. 

Statistics say that most people will only have direct experience of having to manage the funeral of 2.3 people in a lifetime. That doesn't give us much practice at knowing what to do!

So in this interview Georgina and Terry explore the deathcare landscape in New Zealand and a range of topics including:

  * The role of the funeral director
  * The importance of visitation
  * How to care for a body at home
  * Embalming 
  * Deaths referred to the Coroner
  * and what do do if someone dies at home

Many thanks to Terry Longley for taking part in this episode. You can find him at
