Is it right to show funerals on the internet?

Grieving relatives and friends are now able to view their loved one’s funeral on the internet. The company behind the scheme, Wesley Music, is also offering DVDs of funerals for £50 or audio recordings for £25.

But the Reverend Gerard Murphy, of St Mary’s Catholic Church in Stonehaven, was against the filming of funerals.
