This study surveyed preferred funeral rites among 246 undergraduates (116-males and 130 females) from three selected Universities in Nigeria. The various contributions of sex, religion and ethnicity to the students\' preferred funeral rites were specifically investigated. The subjects responded to an instrument named Funeral Rites Questionnaire (FRQ). Frequency counts; percentages and chi-square statistics were employed to analyze collected data. Two research questions were answered and the three null-hypotheses postulated were tested at the 0.05 alpha level of significance.
