Totuplata (Dead Plate)

In Naters, as well as in most localities in the Catholic Valais, it was a religious custom, to lay out the dead at home for 2-3 days, so that relatives could say goodbye. The day before the funeral, the dead were laid out in the coffin on the dead plates in the village, to allow other people to say goodbye. Today the dead are laid out in the funeral chapel dead.
