I went to a fascinating ceremony on Friday evening (23rd), held at the gates of the old Cross Bones Graveyard near London Bridge station in Southwark. In the 1990s London Underground were doing some digging in the area and came across 148 skeletons, many of which were those of women and children (they estimated that this represented only about 1% of the number of bodies buried there, ie there were around 15,000 in total). This plot of land, it turns out, was the site of an old paupers' graveyard, described in a 1598 Survey of London as a burial ground for "single women", a euphemism for prostitutes (and, indeed, 'single woman' is in the OED as a sub-heading of the 'single' entry, with the definition 'a prostitute' (and citations dating from the 16th and 17th centuries)).
The short ceremony I attended was organised by a community group, led by local writer John Constable (also known as John Crow), and takes place at 7pm on the 23rd of every month. The purpose is to honour and remember the forgotten or outcast dead - and not only those buried in Cross Bones. Here is an audio slideshow from the BBC website and here is a very interesting 10-minute video on YouTube.
You'll notice that 'Winchester geese' appears on the plaque and in the video. Winchester geese is another old euphemism for prostitutes. I wrote about this term last year here.
