Lay presiding at Funerals?

Question: 

Is it possible for lay people to preside and preach at funerals?

--Possible in Preston

Answer: 

In the United States, the Catholic Conference of Catholic Bishops did not approve a recent request for this. However, a bishop from an individual diocese may request an indult from the Holy See to allow this extraordinary ministry in his own diocese.
