This gentleman buried in Ardwick in 1787 seems to have attracted a certain notoriety ...

Vicar having the last word coz he repeatedly did not put enough in the collection box?

Vicar certainly made sure that he would be remembered for "eternity", for all the wrong reasons ::) ::)

I always thought a 'collection box' was for giving what one could afford (a donation) which no-one else would have known how much i.e. if someone couldn't afford it then so be it.

I think [Ray] was referring to a collection plate, where several others might be able to watch a person's contribution or lack of it ?  Though I don't know what the process would have been in the late 18th century ....
