Mourning the Victorian Way: A Funeral Reenactment and Graveyard Tour

DATES: Saturday, October 21, 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM


In the 19th century, death and funerals took place at home. Join us in the Music Room at the Rogers Mansion, 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton as we recreate an 1880s funeral service and discuss the funerary customs of 19th century Southampton. The Music room will be draped in black crepe, mirrors and windows will be covered so the deceased’s soul will not be detained and clocks will be stopped at the moment of death. Mourners will follow the coffin to nearby North End Cemetery, for the tour of the burying grounds. 19th-century mourning attire is encouraged. Reservations are required.
