Death and Community in Rural Settlements: Changing Burial Culture in Small Towns and Villages, c. 1850-2007
This ESRC funded study is the first to examine changes in burial culture in rural locations, and in doing so explore the local impact of national burial legislation in the second half of the nineteenth century; the religious politics of burial in smaller settlements; and the endurance of ‘traditional’ funerary practice. The research focussed on rural settlements in Leicestershire and Rutland, and in Yorkshire. The research will be published in 2012. The researchers are Julie Rugg, University of York and Keith Snell, University of Leicester.
