Excellent rrality tv series, hard to beat
4 February 2019 | by trevor-30301See all my reviews

Down to earth, sadness, respect and appropriate humour. It's a very well shot and edited reality series. Despite the topic dealt with, it is done amazingly well. The funeral directors themselves are also amazing.
