In Iceland the funeral can be held 5 to 14 days after death. Before the funeral a small funeral service or wake is held for the closest family members and friends. It takes up to 30 minutes and is usually held in a small funeral chapel.
There are about 320,000 people living in Iceland and the deaths are about 1,800 to 2,000 per year in total. Of that 1,200 occur in the greater Reykjavík area.(Wikipedia)
