Funeral Customs in Tolkien's Trilogy is a booklet by Karen Rockow. Very little is known about this book, if you have more information please edit this page.

This short booklet is 25 pages long and covers the death/funerary rights and their historic/mythological roots of Boromir, The Rohan, Gondor, Dwarves and Hobbits, as well as the practices of the Dark Forces. There is also a section on the Barrow Wights. Primary source material is quoted and the booklet is a good resource to begin exploring these topics.
