Procedure for


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.

A Brick of Mu is a traditionally handmade brick manufactured by HG Matthews brick-makers, with a hole in the centre to be filled with 23 grams of cremated human remains.

The Brick of Mu filled with remains is re-fired in a kiln at 1100ºC until the remains become glaze.

Fired Bricks of Mu are ceremonially laid into the People’s Pyramid on the 23rd of November each year.

When a person’s Brick of Mu has been laid in the People’s Pyramid they have been MuMufied.

MuMufication is for anyone who wishes to be part of the People’s Pyramid, irrespective of religion or other beliefs.

You can register for MuMufication before you die, or get MuMufication for someone who has already died.
