Hello would like to know more. I’m a director and embalmer and find it hard to find anyone who can understand our job or hours . Would like to chat sometime with you
September 6, 2016 at 3:16 pm
This is my first post, in what I find as a strange, nervy situation. I suppose the the word ‘Embalming’ and ‘Funeral’ is what i am talking about here.
To most people, when I describe what I do for a living, they grimace and give me a look of disgust or come out with… ‘ I dont know how you can do that job?’ or ‘Jesus,You must have some stomach on ye’. But not all!!! Some people are generally interested and curious as to why or how we do what we do. but when I am describing the details of our fine profession either in embalming or directing a funeral, I still tone down the information relayed, for the fear of someone taking a completely different view on myself and the company they are keeping!! And obviously, you never know when I could be calling at that same persons house in some sad circumstance to carry out my professional duty. So I suppose there is a certain amount of silence to our job, or the watered down truth, at least. I dont mean that there is anyway of’with-holding’ the truth…. I firmly believe in telling any family member as much information I can….. If they ask! but we do have to be sensitive to the family members we are there to provide for.
But how does it sit with your best freinds or your close and imediate family? in fairness no-one has left me yet!! but the unsociable hours can be tough on family members and the 24hr on call makes it difficult to arrange the sociable meetings with friends. Don’t get me wrong I get enough nights out… maybe too many….. but if there is a special occasion arranged and you have to drop all to try to help ease some families pain from the sometimes untimely or foreseen death of a loved one… Is it not worth while?
The close freind or family member may disagree!!! but they usually understand!!! Dont they??
Or? Does that intimate partner shy off or loose interest in you because of the profession you do? Deep down cringing when you touch them? but dont want to hurt your feelings and, of course they still love you!! I suppose it is a passion killer………. but soldier on we do and get on with it. but how long will that partner???
I have great pride in my work and the professionism I provide to my customers. and I do know I have loyal family and freinds around me that are too proud of what i do. but there is always that fear that some people will look the other way when they see me coming.
Understandable I suppose……….

Hello Profile Zon Mundhenk

Hey! I’m a natural funeral facilitator and celebrant in New Zealand. Dunno what I’m supposed to be writing here though! “Leave a reply”? A comment is required. To whom am I replying/commenting.
May 3, 2014 at 3:06 pm
Hello, always fascinated by Death, who once, during a precarious episode of health, sat at the foot of my bed. He got bored and left. He will no doubt return another time. Death appears at these times because he is fascinated by the mystery of death but is only as mystified as the rest of us.
May 6, 2014 at 5:16 am
Maybe I don’t qualify for this site, because my actual occupation isn’t listed 🙁 I run a training program for death, mourning, and end-of-life doulas and death doulas….which seems like it fits, though there isn’t an option for it…? Thanks!
May 6, 2014 at 8:54 am
I’m going to add the option of ‘Death Doula’ to the occupation list following a recent article in the Guardian 🙂
May 8, 2014 at 3:16 am
That’s awesome, it takes a very special person to bring comfort like that I would think this site fits right in for you

Good aftertomb, Sometimes, I have silly funeral puns and my favorite is “hold your hearses”
October 29, 2014 at 1:34 am
How about Forensic Pathologists’ Assistant and Medico legal death investigator? 🙂
October 29, 2014 at 12:36 pm
Hi, here a Forensic pathologists assistant is an APT but I can add extra categories!
October 29, 2014 at 6:27 am
Well, this is all new to me.
October 31, 2014 at 3:01 am
Hello to all
I am a Funeral Director. I am so elated and a little tickled to find that there is a place where others understand our vast positions in the death industry. Now I don’t have to feel like everyone is ready to scatter when I say proudly ” I am a Funeral Director”.
October 31, 2014 at 4:50 am
Can you please create a category for us autopsy technicians please
November 3, 2014 at 10:22 am
There is a category for autopsy technicians already as that is my job!
April 23, 2016 at 7:00 pm

November 2, 2014 at 8:16 pm

November 3, 2014 at 7:55 pm
Hi Everyone, I’m new to this site. Great to find somewhere that others fully understand what its like to work in the “death industry” and absolutely love it. I’m a chapel attendant in London, UK.
November 4, 2014 at 8:38 pm
Insurmountable quest to discover the last love of my life. Death been inevitable keeps me alive and a wanting to do and obtain what ever it is I desire on a daily basis
November 4, 2014 at 10:11 pm
I’m not yet an Embalmer/Funeral Director but i’m in school for it and almost finished with the program. I still have 3,000 hours of internship to do though. LOL. Glad to be among fine company and not have to worry that my soon-to-be-occupation won’t scare the wits out of anyone in here.
November 10, 2014 at 7:52 pm
congrats you are almost done sir……
November 6, 2014 at 4:58 am
I am an intern right now as a Forensic Autopsy Technician and a Deputy Coroner, currently in the SF Bay Area (my home) but also a UK Citizen (lived in London for about 6 years, too). Used to work crime scene clean-up and I am also a trained Bloodstain Pattern Analyst. This is such an amazing idea! A place where we who cannot discuss our jobs during ‘polite’ dinner conversation can find others who’d be glad to! Look forward to chatting with a few of you!
November 6, 2014 at 2:18 pm
Hi everybody! I’m Aurélie, from Brussels (Belgium) Funeral director student, in my second and last schoolyear; I hope to be an embalmer, so next year if everything’s ok, I’ll study thanato. I have to go one month in stage in UK and one month in stage in USA. If someone can help me to get website addresses to find a kot to rent, a youthhostel or just a bed to sleep, I’lk be so lucky!
