Random information on the term “Criers”:
A dead bell or deid bell (Scots), also a ‘death’, ‘mort’, ‘lych’, ‘passing bell’ or ‘skellet bell’ was a form of hand bell used in Scotland and northern England in conjunction with deaths and funerals up until the 19th century.
Belief in the supernatural was common in the Middle Ages and special protective powers were sometimes attributed to certain objects, including bells. The Church itself condoned the use of bells to frighten away evil spirits and this ensured the practice’s survival and development. Bells were often baptised, and once baptised were believed by many to possess the power to ward off evil spells and spirits. The use of the dead bell was typical of this belief, rung for the recently deceased to keep evil spirits away from the body.
The dead bell was therefore originally rung for two reasons: firstly to seek the prayers of Christians for a dead person’s soul, and secondly to drive away the evil spirits who stood at the foot of the dead person’s bed and around the house.
