Actually it's not so unusual - in sweden it has often been 2-3 months. It has been shortened a bit in the last few years, but for a long time the official "recommendation" was 2 months to allow for the grieving process to work its course.

I think things are a lot less urgent these days. Funeral directors seem happy to allow things like family holidays and other factors to delay the funeral. It certainly used to be less than 2 weeks, but now five to six weeks seems standard.
