Grave Trade

This documentary series follows the staff of family-run funeral directing business, T. Cribb and Sons, and a handful of archaeologists as they go about their daily business: the dead and buried.

We follow 4th generation Cribb John, his brother Graham, and daughter Sarah, as they lead a team of 60 staff across ten sites: we meet the funeral conductors, pall bearers, drivers, mortuary technicians and others, and see their work as stories of every kind of funeral unfold.

We explore modern Britain’s diverse burial customs – from marching bagpipe bands, to personalised coffins; from East End grandeur, to lively Ghanaian festivity, we take a look at how different communities deal with death.

Alongside this, we see the extraordinary work of archaeologists examining burial practices from prehistoric man, to the Anglo Saxons, right through to the Victorians, as we examine how we buried the dead and found ways of dealing with the emotion of the occasion in the past.

From the people responsible for putting us in to the ground, to those who may be asked to dig us back up again, we lift the lid on the dead.
