Coffin Talk

Coffins. The badge used by the Lyke Wake Walk Club (and the New Lyke Wake Walk Club) is one of a coffin. here at Ryedale Folk Museum, we have a funeral bier and a horse-drawn hearse. John Nicoll, museum volunteer was involved in the restoration of the bier, read about it here at: http://ryedalefolkmuseum.blogspot.com/2009/07/kirkbymoorside-funeral-bier-restored-by.html.

This post has attracted viewers from all over the globe, and has been linked to a forum called Coffin Talk. This is a message board for funeral directors, mortuary science students,and those with a morbid curiosity. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to John Nicoll for creating a very interesting post that many others have also found interesting.
