Transformation des lieux d’inhumation des musulmans dans le Grand Londres

Abstract : Funerary policies and practices of religious minorities are intertwined with broader political discourse on cultural and religious pluralism, identity and diversity. This paper, based on the results of field work in London in 2017, investigates the choices offered by the Muslim undertakers in the Greater London area. It analyses the possible reasons why local burial (versus sending abroad) has become standard practise among British-Muslims in London. The paper establishes that the plurality of funerary actors and the various burial options offered to Muslims combined with the focus on religious diversity, and the increased political agency of Muslims has modelled Muslim burial practices. It also draws attention to the new trend in Muslim burials that is progressively becoming the norm among British-Muslims in London
