dead person and for a meal and a fee
undertook the responsibility of the
guilt of the departed!
In Wales the night before the burial
the friends and neighbors came to
the house, bringing with them a small
piece of meat or bread and some beer,
etc. This night was called "Wyl Nos"
(the watching night). Certain psalms
were sung and Scriptures read, and
when a person entered the room they

the Lord's Prayer. x
Pence and halfpence were given to
the poor In place of small rolls of
bread, which was the older custom.
Along the road from the house to the
churchyard at every cross-road the
bier was rested on the ground and the
Lord's Prayer repeated; so also on
entering the church.
