Final Passages
From the Final Passages website:

Final Passages is a non-profit organization, founded in 1995, offering education for personal and legal rights concerning home or family-directed funerals and final disposition (burial and cremation). It is our intention to re-introduce the concept of funerals in the home as a part of family life and as a way to de-institutionalize death. We are dedicated to a dignified and compassionate alternative to current funeral practices.

Final Passages is affiliated with the National Home Funeral Alliance.
