November's First Sunday: In Memoriam

I am delighted that November has spawned not a monster but a very special First Sunday, facilitated by Soibhan

Here is what she says: 

lets wander around Angel Meadows, and remember the unmarked graves of the poor. In Angel Meadows as many as 40 000 were buried between 1788-1816, many in paupers graves. In Greater Manchester there have been 1,000 paupers’ funerals over the past five years, the highest number in England, and growing. In Manchester city area "paupers" are buried in a communal grave in southern cemetery.

Wear Black for Remembrance. Bring flowers, tributes, memories, poems, songs, libations.

Paupers’ – or public authority – funerals are provided by a council or health authority when someone dies with no money or their relatives cannot be traced, do not want to be involved or have no money to pay for the funeral.

Meet outside new co-op building at 1 Angel Square 1pm

Wake at Bar Fringe afterwards.
