In the british tradition one must not speak ill of the dead. One line of thinking is fear that the dead may come back to defend their honour. Another is respect for those not present to defend themselves.

In other traditions one must take care to speak the truth of the dead, to satisfy them that they have been well-understood and that they have left their own mark.
