In light of increasing ethnic and religious diversity, there is a need for diversity-ready cemeteries, crematoria and remembrance sites in the UK. The AHRC-ESRC Deathscapes & Diversity research project investigatesĀ the politics and practices of migrant and minority cemetery and crematoria provision in four case towns in England and Wales, working with local providers and communities.

The project is supported by the Royal Town Planning Institute and the Institute for Cemetery and Crematorium Management, and aims to catalyse a more inclusive policy and research agenda across the sector. In 2018, we will launch a policy-briefing report and a photographic exhibition, which will also be displayed on this website from September.
