Abbey House Museum

Abbey Walk, Kirkstall, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS5 3EH

How did the ways in which we remember those who have passed change between the close of the Victorian era and the end of the Second World War? Join us to explore mourning cards, funeral bills and other personal effects of the deceased. We will discuss whether the culture of mourning and remembrance has changed, and if so, why.

This session will be led by Dr Patrick Bourne (communities curator at Abbey House Museum) and Dr Jessica Hammett (Public Engagement Fellow at the University of Leeds: you can find out more about her research here). 

This talk is part of a programme of events linked to Abbey House Museum's exhibition Remembrance.

How have we chosen to remember those close to us in the past? How important are objects, places and actions in helping us tell personal stories today about those we have lost? This new display, co-curated with Abbey House Museum and the University of Leeds, reflects on how commemoration has changed since the Victorian era and features contributions from people in contemporary Leeds.
