Do you have full references for any of these images?

In the Will of one of the Lady Hungerfords (late C.14th I think) it is stipulated that the children of her servants are to be supplied with black clothing, or black cloth to make clothes.

She also has 4 women with torches stand around her body as it lay in the chapel.
