People have begun to read the serial and submit ideas for the title. I've even gotten some comments, mostly about wanting more installments. I'm writing the next one now. Hope to post it later this week.

You can read the serial and enter the contest here:

The two title entries I like the best so far are:

1) The Stiffs of Gravesend

Why? It's wordplay. The Stiffs family are undertakers and stiffs is slang for corpses. Phineas Stiffs is the romantic hero of the story.

2) A Touch of Velvet

Why? Coffins are lined with velvet. Also, the story takes place in a dieselpunk milieu in which I imagine that velvet is often worn.
