  • Jacquie says:

    I believe that Phillipa should be the one to choose the resting place. Without her RIII would never have been found

  • Traxy says:

    I chose “I don’t care” on the first one, but not for want of caring, but because I’m torn between two. Either Leicester Cathedral, because he was found in Leicester and has spent the last centuries there, or York Cathedral, because of … well, the House of York.

    One thing that makes me biased on behalf of Leicester is that it’s nearby to where I live so it would be easy to visit, and Leicester could probably do with that sort of a tourist attraction. York already has oodles of tourist interest, but I don’t think Leicester does. (I could be completely wrong, so apologies to any Leicesterians.)

    In the end, I’m asking myself that if King Richard WANTED to be found, where would he want to be buried? Perhaps he wouldn’t want to stay in Leicester at all. Maybe that’s why he wanted to be found?

    But yeah, anywhere that are interested in providing a final resting place should make their case and then … someone should decide. I chose the R3 Society, but I’m not sure who it should be, but his descendant should have a say in it because he’s the only family left.

    Very difficult questions!

    Without Dr.John Ashdown-Hill and Philippa Langley, King Richard 3 would still be under the car park . Time team was not interested , and Leicester University originally Poo-Pood the idea, These two wonderfull people should have the final say as to were Richard should be re- buried . j.fox

  • In your question, “Who should have the final decision over burial procedure and place?” you have given one option as “Let electorate of England decide in an online election (to spare costs and paper).” I would like to point out that it is quite offensive to use the word ‘England’ when surely you mean to include all of us who live in Britain? To exclude Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland is either ignorant or offensive. I’m sure this is an oversight but please do be aware in future that people who live in places other than England have opinions about Richard III too. I did not choose the ‘worldwide’ option as I believe that having King Richard buried here will chiefly affect us in Britain.

    • CDoart says:

      Sorry, Davena Hooson, that this option is not to your liking.
      I exactly meant ‘England’, as King Richard III was the King of England and not of a wider and later established British kingdom.
      Though I must add that in the German use of the word ‘England’ would always be used in an admiring and all-encompassing wider way and never be meant to offend.

  • Helen Bushell says:

    Although I’ve opted for the final resting place to be York Cathedral, I think Fotheringay is also an option – at least there Richard would be laid to rest with his father and brother. Why also, is John Ashdown-Hill not included in the process? After all, it was his research into the DNA and conversations with Philippa Langley which helped prompt the search, and confirmed who’s bones they were. They should both have the final say in this matter.

  • fitzg says:

    To the first two questions, I would rather eliminate some cities who have now come forward with petitions. For one thing, Richard III was a member of the York family, not the Gloucester family, by descent from Edward III. Richard represented the “Yorkist party” during the Cousins’ Wars. As Traxy has indicated she has been divided between two cities, so have I been.

    With regard to the final location decision, my vote would probably be Parliament, as Her Majesty, however indirectly descended from Richard III, nevertheless has been heir to the Throne, and has considerable input to/influence on constitutional matters.

  • If Richard Armitage was asked where King Richard 111 would be buried, I think he would say Leicester Cathedral, he has worked hard to get the remains unearthed and has worked very hard even though he was also busy in his acting roles. he should have a say as well as many others.

    • CDoart says:

      Thank you, Denise Gagnon, for adding this option.
      I must admit, I left this option out as I thought it would show me too much as the partial fan ;o)
