“I first became fascinated by the role of individual narrative in monuments and memorials as I co-curated a project for Crossbones Graveyard in London in 2018. The tiny paupers’ gravesite contains approximately 15,000 bodies, primarily children and women, buried between the post-Medieval period and 1853. A number of those women are thought to have been sex workers, who, though licensed by the Bishop of Winchester to do sex work, were denied burial in consecrated ground.”
