Significant players include Fourways Memorial Park, Legacy Parks and Calgro M3's Nasrec Memorial Park. Growing in popularity in the formal sector are lavish funeral ceremonies and 'after tears parties', 'green' funerals, 'living funerals', also known as pre-funerals, and live Internet streaming of funerals.;
