doing some research and it's amazing how LITTLE info is out there for this........but I think the gloves were given to the 'bearers' Of course, I don't know for sure (yet!)but I found this......

"In a simple ‘walking funeral’, as described above, the bearers were friends and relatives, and chosen, if possible, to reflect the status of the deceased: older people, especially if married, would be carried by married men; unmarried girls by young women (or young bachelors, if the road to the church was a long one); babies and little children by older children in white. They were generally given black gloves"
