Following the current duscussion in the pages of the Jewish Chronicle about the right of non-rabbinic people to speak at funerals or stone-settings, you might be interested to know what happened at Waltham Abbey, an orthodox cemetery, when my husband died over 20 years ago. I asked permission for members of the family and friends to read the psalms, rather than the officiating minister. This permission was granted. You only have to ask.
