Burial clubs - the unfriendly societies

Another presentation well worth listening to, by Audrey Collins, has recently been posted in the TNA podcast series. The talk provides background on these clubs, organized so that people don't suffer the indignity of a pauper funeral, gives details of documented cases and statistical evidence of abuse in 19th century England where people were murdered for the payment. Not pleasant, but reality.

May we have the show notes posted please?
