Victorian Funeral Customs

Friday, October 23, 2020

The Sterling Heights Historical Commission invites you for an intriguing discussion of the interesting, peculiar, and sometimes humorous aspects of Victorian funeral practices. This event will be hosted in the Upton House Museum. The Utpon’s lived during the Victorian Era and evidence suggests that their young daughter, Rena, died while at home. Rena’s funeral very likely took place in the Upton House and followed the common customs of the time. Join us to understand what her funeral may have looked like.
