The Gentleman's Magazine described funeral biscuits in 1790. The writer described them as "a kind of sugared biscuit, which are wrapped up, generally two of them together, in a sheet of wax paper, sealed with black wax". The biscuits were given to each person attending the funeral, and were a custom of the funerals of "lower and the middling class of people".
