Carefully, I placed the last of my great-great-great- grandmother's antique wine glasses into the silk-lined casket and closed the lid, before settling into the passenger's seat.

The driver doffed his cap and we set off at a stately pace, passing out through the front gates of my old home, en route to the new.

I knew everything would get there safely, as we never exceeded ten kilometres per hour... a long convoy of hearses, loaded with coffins and stuffed full of my belongings.

I hoped to use the same caring, discreet service when it came time for me to move on, to my next life.

       Yes, but all your friends and family will be weeping, wailing, and drinking heavily every time you move...

       Yeah but I weep, wail and drink heavy when my family makes me help them move. (with my truck)

       As long as you're aware that the cortege will be preceeded by an ice-cream van, full of happy, drunken halfbakers, playing "Ding, dong, the witch is dead …" at maximum volume.

Yes, [8th], but I'll be dead... and you'll still be British.

       How many pall bearers were required for grandma's Steinway?
