Last re­quest’s a grave er­ror!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

LEP­RECHAUN pall bear­ers at a man’s burial are among a list of bizarre fi­nal re­quests re­leased by a funeral firm.

An­other wanted their vicar to be dressed as Elvis, and a third in­sisted on be­ing laid to rest with their tele­vi­sion.

The un­usual list also in­cluded a 65-year-old man from Worces­ter­shire who asked to be buried next to his first wife as she was “more fun”.

Pe­cu­liarly, a 68-year-old an­i­mal-lover from Sur­rey asked to have her cat put down so it could be put in the cof­fin with her – a re­quest that was po­litely re­fused.

Other strange re­quests re­vealed by funeral plan provider Avalon in­clude a former kids’ en­ter­tainer who asked to go out dressed as a clown, and a self-pro­claimed sex ad­dict who begged to be buried with his favourite “toy”.
