Burial Practices

Hi all!

 I have a question about burial practices. I've heard that back in the day people were buried with bells in case they woke up and needed to get dug out. I just want to know what time period that would have occurred in, where it was prevalent and anything else someone might know about that might be of interest. Thanks in advance.
