    which one , funeral

    1) "There are 3 ladies sitting over there. Which one do you think is the most beautiful one?"

    Am I right in putting which one in the sentence?


    2) What do we name the profession of one

    a. who put make-up for the deceased
    b. who organized the funeral for the deceased


    3) Is there a website stating keywords of rituals/accessories/individuals regarding funeral?

    [2] Makeup Artist OR as Reagan writes:
    As a funeral director / embalmer, we do the make-up ourselves, we don't hire outside personnel for this since we are all extensively trained in mortuary school how to do the cosmetics. Very, very few, if any funeral homes ever hire out for this, it is done in-house by a funeral director (or mortician, whatever you want to call us) Source

    I've also come across the term 'mortician' - possibly in Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One; I don't think I've heard it used.

    We have 'Funeral Directors' in the UK, but they're more often 'undertakers'.
