Like i have said many ....many ....times about the way human beings celebrate death .....how that human beings are brainwashed into thousands and thousands of dollars for empty boxes to fill with dead people .......i am probably on my own in this subject of death ......as everyone and their  family want to be paraded..... and gloated over in death........


The queen ....thousands and thousands of people lined for hours ....event through the night to pass by a box with a dead person ......which does not make a gram of sense to me ......worst of all....is when an open coffin with say like someone famous.. ( yes the queen is famous ) ....elvis or such like .......people want to see a dead person ........what the fuck is the fascination!!!!!!!.......why do people want to stare at death so much ....why is the fascination to stand in line to see death .......i will never ever  get it .......i was watching some of the queens funeral.......i could only take about 15 minutes  ....as  my level of toleration of human beings gloating of death is beyond......i am glad i am not  in that group of people ......crying....... and putting cards...... and flowers....... and balloons..... and bears ....for a  dead person.......i find it  repugnant .......this is why i post in here  ....because i would be wasting my time elsewhere ............all the funerals i have attended .....3 in total ........all i saw was remorse ....lies and bullshit ......and people excuses  for why they  could not be there all the time ...but........ flew 7 hours to see them dead ...think about how crazy that sounds  ....only death unites us ....that's what they are saying in the  news ......... uk is united in the death of the queen .....so the rest of the years ........you are just a  pile of  fucking angry....... useless ....... whining...... nasty ..........wankers ......that's what it is  saying

Queen Elizabeth’s coffin was made more than 30 years ago by the same firm that made the lead-lined casket in which the Duke of Edinburgh lies interred.

Royal coffins are traditionally made from well-seasoned oak from the Sandringham estate, but precise details about the manufacture of the late Queen’s coffin are thought to have been lost in the decades since it was ordered.

The lead-lined casket - which is effectively a coffin within a coffin - was made by the specialist firm Henry Smith, which closed in 2005 and which also made the Duke of Edinburgh's coffin, as well as those of celebrities including Diana Dors, Freddie Mercury and Jimi Hendrix.

The brass handles and other fitments, which include clasps to hold the Imperial State Crown, orb and sceptre in place when they are placed on the coffin for the lying in state, are thought to have been made by the Birmingham foundry Newman Brothers, which is no longer in business.

Until the 1990s, the casket was maintained by the London-based funeral director JH Kenyon Ltd, which handled the funerals of King George VI in 1952 and Winston Churchill in 1965.

When another London firm, Leverton and Sons, took over responsibility for royal funerals in 1991, the Queen’s coffin was passed on to the company, which has little detail about when or how it was made other than that it was before that year.

Andrew Leverton, who runs the family business, told The Times in 2018: “It is made from English oak, which is very difficult to get hold of. Oak coffins are now made from American oak. I don’t think we could use English oak for a coffin now. It would be too expensive.”

The coffin has to be lined with lead because the Queen will be interred in the King George VI Memorial Vault, rather than given a traditional burial. It is so heavy that it requires eight pallbearers, rather than the usual six.

Henry Smith made coffins using a method called lead shell and case, in which a simple inner coffin is made of wood, covered in lead and then placed inside an outer coffin.
