It’s Your Funeral
How Grieving Families Are Being Exploited—and How We Can Stop It
When, as a young man, Thomas P.J. Crean took over the funeral business his grandfather had founded in Vancouver, British Columbia, funeral homes comforted and served local families and their communities. The “rationalization” of the industry in the 1970s brought multinational conglomerates that bought out countless funeral homes and kept up a “family business” facade while sacrificing integrity to shareholder profits.
Since 1975, Crean has fought for the rights of the bereaved, exposing the deceptive, unethical, predatory practices of big corporations. It’s Your Funeral is a compelling account of Crean’s life—and his mission to restore integrity to the funeral business.
Crean’s vision is to see the grief-stricken treated fairly and given access to affordable funeral and cemetery services. It’s Your Funeral is more than an account of a tireless crusader’s battle for fairness and dignity. It’s a playbook for those who wish to join the fight to end the exploitation of people at the most vulnerable time of their lives.
