Henry Fowler was twice, long ago, runner-up in the Oil Fuels Guild-sponsored Young Funeral Director of the Year competition. His intense loyalties are to his parents, to his wife and children, to the family firm and the trade it practices, to his native south-east London and to his best friend Curly. But when Henry cuts a lock of his sleeping daughter's hair, the foundations of a world, a family and an identity begin to rock.
