Christian Burial Sought for “Elephant Man”

“Elephant man” should be given a Christian burial, according to campaigners who are determined to see his remains removed from their glass viewing case at Queen Mary, University of London.

CHR Comment: Although Joseph Merrick died in 1890, he was never properly buried. His bones remain on display in a glass case at the Queen Mary Museum of London. Museum curators argue that medical students should be able to see Merrick’s bones; descendants of those who worked with Merrick believe he should receive a proper Christian burial as a man of sincere faith.
