What is MuMufication?

MuMufication is a new form of memorialisation, a funeral ceremony for like-minded people irrespective of creed or background.

MuMufication is the act of having a small portion of cremated human remains fired in a Brick of Mu and laid in the People’s Pyramid.

Bricks of Mu are laid at the brick laying ceremony every year on the 23rd of November.

Why MuMufication?

To remember. To mourn. To build the People’s Pyramid.

Who is building the People’s Pyramid?

The People’s Pyramid is being built by K2 Plant Hire Ltd and undertakers CPCD – Callender, Phillips, Cauty & Drummond.

The architect is Paul Sullivan.

The ceremonial bricklayer is Daisy Campbell.

The merchandisers are L-13 Merchants of Death who raise funds to build the Pyramid.

The Bricks of Mu are made by hand by HG Matthews Brickmakers.

The People’s Pyramid will be built of 34,592 Bricks of Mu containing the cremated remains of 34,592 people.

Who can Get MuMufication?

MuMufication is for anyone cremated who wants to be part of the People’s Pyramid, or whose friends/family wish them to be memorialised in the People’s Pyramid. There are no religious or other requirements to join. Just ensure your family and friends are aware of your wishes.

Who can’t Get MuMufication?

The People’s Pyramid is built of human remains and therefore we cannot accept cremated remains of pets or sentimental inanimate objects.

Yes, particularly if you think they would have appreciated it and there is a consensus amongst friends and family.

If you are getting MuMufication for someone already dead you can choose not to be sent the brick, and simply send us the remains.

Can I have a regular funeral and still Get MuMufication?

Yes. Only 23 grams of cremated remains are needed for MuMufication. MuMufication is complimentary to all other funeral ceremonies.

What happens once the Brick of Mu and remains are sent back?

23 grams of remains are placed in the hole in the Brick of Mu, which is re-fired in a kiln at 1100ºC until the bones form a glaze and fuse with the brick.

Where is the People’s Pyramid being built?

The People’s Pyramid is currently being built on its foundation stone and housed in a customised shipping container. This is so it can be moved to different sites each year until a permanent site is found.

It is believed that the People’s Pyramid will find its permanent site in Toxteth but nothing is set in stone.

When will the People’s Pyramid be completed?

The People’s Pyramid will start as a small pyramid and grow upwards and outwards each year as more bricks are added. When 34,592 bricks have been laid and the People’s Pyramid stands 23 feet high, it will be complete. This will take 999 years or more.

Can I buy Merch?

Yes, you can buy MuMufication Merchandise here. All profits from Merch sales go towards building the People’s Pyramid.

I have another question.
