A christian said we wern't all going to the same place after we die... What's a morgue for then?
Well, if you count separate burial plots as different places....
Whether turned to ash or burried bellow, death is a place we all must go. One's final destination is of no import, for we all pay the same toll.
Funerals and burial services are for the Living, not the Dead. The deceased has no consciousness, is nothingness, therefore knows nothing about it. Gone, finished.
However, those left behind need to let go. The commemorations help in that letting-go. Great respect to whatever form of service or celebration suits the individual and the culture.
I would rather be buried in a compost heap, covered thickly with sawdust first, then leaves, etc. Great worm fodder! A sure way to promote life after death.
Rev_20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
Rev_20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Ego death is the first death, the second is being reborn in your own image. As opposed to that of one's origin.
SirDent, all of this in the Book of Revelations is so obscure in its meaning that I don't find it useful at all.
Anyone could read into it whatever analogy or metaphor they like. It can be very useful thing to read, for some, I am sure. However, when you read such a thing literally, then try to convince others of your interpretation, I think you are treading on dangerous ground.
I have been to quite a few funerals...I must say...I have never attended one where it was thought that the person in the coffin was going to hell...

Would you find it unacceptable for someone to request no funeral, someone you loved? I don't think I would want to put my kids, family, and friends to the expense, disruption, and awfulness of a funeral but would that...
