    Barry Albin Dyer(Author)
Celebrity undertaker Barry Albin Dyer’s warm and endearing insights and anecdotes will give you a helpful understanding of death, and guidance on how to prepare in advance both for the funeral of a loved one and for your own ‘final departure’.

Mixing practical advice with fascinating true stories, Barry demonstrates that the mourning of a death can also be an opportunity for the celebration of a life.

Includes advice on making a will and arranging a funeral.

Barry Albin Dyer is President of FIAT-IFTA, the world association of funeral directors, and heads up F. A. Albin and Sons in Bermondsey, South London, one of the country’s oldest family-run firm of funeral directors. His first book, Don’t Drop the Coffin became the basis of a six-part ITV documentary series of the same name. He is now one of the UK's best-known undertakers and is consulted on and conducts some of the most high-profile funerals in the country. He is also the sole European agent for Detroit's controversial Cryonics Institute.

  • By JTH on 6 July 2009

    I have read all of Barry's books and had the pleasure of meeting the man himself. He has a way of imparting the lighter side of undertaking, his stories are gems. I cried from laughing!

    An interesting but empathic book written by a genuine man who certainly knows and understands his vocation and calling. I have no need to elaborate. Just read the book and feel the compassion and care that Barry portrays in his writing. Once again Barry an excellent resource from you to ALL who may be going through the grieving process.Highly recommended to all.
