Coffin Works Funeral Study Day

  • Coffin Works Museum 13-15 Fleet Street Birmingham UK (map)

I will be delivering my creative-critical paper on the history of shrouds, my time as writer-in-residence at Coffin Works, and my obsession with dead girls and true crime.

A day of talks aiming to bring academics, the funeral industry and the general public together to share knowledge about funerals.

A diverse programme includes curious tales from Arnos Vale Cemetery and talks on Victorian funerals, mourning for infants and children in Victorian times, epitaphs, excavating burial ground and the history of UK embalming.
