The GOOD FUNERAL GUIDE blog is such a great source of information and entertainment. This is a photo of an Irish funeral home which Charles posted The Good Funeral Guide

Coffins were provided by the bar/grocer/general merchant in rural Ireland in recent times and the wake was held at home, the funeral in the church. The  Funeral Home /Parlour is all rather new.  My friend Kathryn, who was a florist, approved of the advent of the funeral home as having the wake at home was quite onerous as crowds and gawpers came and expected food, drink and entertainment.
