Further details

Meeting George leaves Alice shaken. He does look like Harry, but why didn't he show up when Harry was alive? Before Alice can deal with that revelation, first she must arrange a funeral for the man she loved. Alice can't bear the thought of Harry in a graveyard and finds herself at loggerheads with Minnie and Gerry over what Harry would have wanted.

Meanwhile the police continue to look for an unidentified witness captured on the CCTV of Harry's fall. Alice and Charlotte decide to take matters into their own hands and come up with a plan to bury Harry at home. But Gerry detests the idea. He reminds Alice that they still need to sell the house to pay off the inheritance tax - and no one's going to buy it with a fresh grave in the garden!

Alice ploughs on regardless, enlisting Nathan and his bereavement group to help with her unconventional plans. Despite all the obstacles the home burial is a success, but Charlotte drops a bombshell which leaves Alice with even more unanswered questions.
