@Mistwraith I'm mainly talking about how paupers were treated in death in the early to mid 1800's. This was a time when they were treated as refuse really (poor laws of 1834 and Poor Law amendment act of 1847). They would get better treatment if they died in the workhouses but generally if they had no money for a funeral then they had a paupers funeral. This attitude did change after 1872
