Tombstone Tuesday: Burial Clubs in the UK

I seem to be fresh out of interesting tombstones this week, so I'm sending you to If You Like A Lot of Brassware On Your Coffin, Join Our Club!, an informative but thoroughly entertaining article by Chris Hale of The Middenshire Chronicles about the burial clubs once common in the UK and how Brits mourned their dead. Enjoy!

Hello Jama darling, you’ve been quiet lately, I miss you Luv. Well this is very interesting indeed, for your information, I refuse to purchase “Peace of Mind” and don’t really care for the DVD, as for sherry, I am not old but let me tell you, at times in the evening, I love to sit down and have a glass (don’t tell my tea-followers)

What a wonderful link! The terror and shame of a "pauper's funeral" is something older people still talk about today.
