About this publication

This publication accompanies Lucy Beech's latest film, 'Me and Mine', with a foreword by Steven Bode and an essay by Naomi Pierce. 

"The business of Death is a solemn affair, and its rhythms and rituals can also feel timeless, permanent, set in stone. But the contemporary funeral industry is changing, embracing alternative practices, acknowledging different voices, and, as Lucy Beech’s film bears witness, increasingly fronted and influenced by women. Pivoting around an annual awards event at which the growing contribution of women to the sector is celebrated, ‘Me and Mine’ records (and applauds) this transformation, but also pauses to reflect on what else these changes might be said to signify."
