‘When the coffin was carried into the Chapel of Ease there was a howl of derision from the striking gravediggers.  They were cheering and clapping and yelling.  We were mortified!  My late aunt deserved a better send-off than this!’  Judy Andrews told reporters outside the funeral parlour in Quebec. 

‘They were waving banners and laughing and pointing.  I don’t know whether they deserve better pay and conditions of service, but now, after this display I believe they deserve hanging!’

Co-operative Funeral Services, from the photograph above, appear to have found a solution.
