Not the kind of topic i enjoy, It's Just that my father in law is running the funerals for the Royal Marines Ass. And as he left the Marines more than 20 years ago as a WO2 he cannot remember the correct precedure for the postioning of a coffin in a church or crematorium, ie Does the coffin face the congregation or does it face away. I know that when a coffin comes off a herc or out of a hurse it is always feet first, It is the postioning thats got me stumped. I'am sure there must be some Guardsmen out there who can enlighten me on the subject. Thanks GIZ.
