Why is that?

I read of one precedent back during the gold rush when pictures were included in coffins as a means of identification (?) but those images were on metal, which would I expect remain corrupted longer than paper.

I've seen photographic images on tiles inset on tombstones.

But photos inside a coffin?
Do they include a flashlight as well?
A lot of bibles go into coffins.
