Aldermen whose Burials are Recorded in Machyn's Diary.
[The worthy diarist, who appears to have been an undertaker by profession, records the funeral arrangements in elaborate detail, not forgetting the 'grett dener' which usually followed the 'berehyng.' The diary deserves notice if only for the grotesque orthography, which throws into the shade the most inspired efforts of the modern 'Simplified Speling Sosieti.']
