Similar to not knocking a grotto or not knocking a fairy fort, I don’t know of any memoriam card that has been put in a bin. In our house, some are on display, some in a drawer and others in books.
I had always considered them as having been issued by the bereaved family to friends and relatives as a memento. Until last April, when I passed some time in the church in Adare, Co. Limerick and saw two memorial cards left on a candle table, did I think of a memoriam card as a way of travelling the world and introducing the remembered to a new audience.
They are remembered here by me on All Souls’ Eve.
