Christian reburial in Yorkshire
The community of Masham, Yorkshire recently honoured its early ancestors with a reburial ceremony. 57 skeletons found 20 years ago were laid to rest again.
As the vicar of Masham said in the service “Today is a sharp reminder for us of the speedy passing of time – as we are, so were these members of our community whom we remember today. These were people who mattered to others, sons and daughters, wives and husbands, brothers, sisters, children.”
No more so than our pagan ancestors who equally deserve this recognition.
