I have no problem photographing at funerals, and I've never had anyone complain at all.<<< Hi Johnny my old friend, I have to tell you old buddy it ain't just like a happy camper outing when it's a funeral you're not one of the wailing party! Try covering a funeral as a news event and see how fast the folks get on you real quick, as some kind of a ghoul and they want to plant you face down first, then drop the coffin on you! Then you'll find out right smartly how quickly they are not all " that wonderful get together at the wake and it turns into one of those times you never want to forget" Quite frankly, it turns out as "one of those horror assignments" you never want to remember! ted.
