“A Sense of Fitness” - Presidential Address, May 1997

Colin R Williamson

This quotation from Ian Maclaren's Beside the Bonnie Brier Bush prefaces a survey from earliest times to the present, including recent Scottish custom, of the rituals surrounding the funeral, drawing on the Fathers, other theological writings, service books, literature and statistical accounts. Against this background the writer examines current Scottish funeral orders.
