This second edition of Dealing with Death is a completely updated, authoritative and timely source of information that takes account of the recent changes in UK law relating to death and cremation certification, registration and coronial practice and the impact of the Harold Shipman and Alder Hey enquiries on current law. The authors bring together clear guidance on all the legal, technical and forensic procedures surrounding death, including exhumation and organ donation. They give insights into considerations for the living and dignified care for the dying and also offer an overview of cultural and religious death rites and the implications of religious beliefs on blood transfusions, terminal care and euthanasia. This professional handbook is a key text for coroners, lawyers, police, funeral directors and clergy, as well as healthcare professionals and students.
