Ashes to admin : tales from the caseload of a council funeral officer

King, Evie2023
Books, Manuscripts
'I've a body out the back for you' - imagine having that sentence said to you. And then imagine it actually being pertinent. Welcome to Evie King's world. What happens if you die without family or money? The answer to this very three-in-the-morning question is that Evie, or someone like her, will step in and arrange your funeral. Evie is a local council worker charged with carrying out Section 46 funerals under the Public Health Act. Or to put it in less cold, legislative language; funerals for those with nobody around, willing or able to bury or cremate them. 'Ashes to Admin' lifts the coffin lid on some moving and unexpected personal life stories. Sometimes tragic, as with the case of an unidentified woman found on a beach buried without even a name, but often uplifting and occasionally hilarious.
