Thinking about conducting a “Burial of the Dead” service at your event, but not sure how? We scanned the Burial of the Dead service from our original 1734 Book of Common Prayer and then turned it into a pamphlet for you to use and pass out at your event. You can either get it free by downloading it from our 18th Century Parsons page on Facebook or you can purchase our Pamphlet DVD which has it and another hundred of so pamphlets, military documents, etc., on it, or we can make them for you.
