Welcome to the Deathscapes and Diversity research project. Using four case study towns in England and Wales and a variety of creative and participatory methods, we explore how the needs of migrants and established minorities are interpreted and met within existing public and private cemetery, crematoria and remembrance site provision, and how any shortfalls might be addressed through community participation and local authority planning.
In addition to academic output, the project aims to identify best practice and to inform local government and other providers about improving cemetery and crematoria provision. Also, the project will result in a visual exhibition, including photographs of participants.
The project is supported by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management and the Royal Town Planning Institute.
