NEWS ROUND-UP: Sheffielders vote for a happy send-off
Published Date: 14 January 2010

NEARLY half of people in Sheffield would like to be buried in an environmentally friendly coffin, such as a wicker casket, according to research.

An overwhelming majority want funerals to be happy occasions rather than sombre affairs and 42% would prefer upbeat music such as pop or rock to be played at their funeral. Bette Midler‘s Wind Beneath My Wings retains the number one spot in the top ten list of funeral songs.

The research was commissioned by Remember A Charity, which seeks to encourage more people to leave gifts to charity in wills.
