This is a question Putting the Fun in Funeral

Some deaths come suddenly or too soon and can really hit hard, others seem to be a blessed relief. Similarly, some funerals can be deeply upsetting and sad, others can make you want to hug the world.

Mmm, don't want to bring you down or anything, but tell us your funeral stories...

Racing Bengali Hearse drivers
Close relative of ours dies in east London. As its a muslim wedding the funeral has to take place within 24 hours. The family manages to book a funeral director who turned out to be the Bengali equivelent of Dr Strangelove and a French taxi driver.

After the Mosque service, the director decides he didnt want to wait for the mourners so he tried to goto the burial site himself and do the job on his own- he had another 'job' to do. Cue distraught relatives rushing to their cars, scooping anyone who looked like they were in the mosque causing traffic mayhem.

I managed to pick-up some close relatives of the deceased so I had to try and get to the grave before Docteur Strangelove got there. Shouldn't be too hard, he only left 10 minutes before me, and how fast can a hearse actually go?

Answer: About 80mph at least. Thats what the speedo said on my Golf as I recklessly weaved through traffic over the Stratford fly-over. Managed to overtake him and him slow down, but I dont think he liked it as he was honking his horn very angrily.
