The Mausolea & Monuments Trust

Final Journey: Funeral Trains

12 October 2020 at 6.30

Venue

The Gallery, 77 Cowcross Street, London, EC1M 6EL

Cost

£10 members, £15 Guests

This lecture coincides with the publication of Nicolas's book on funeral trains and the transport of coffins by train in the UK from 1840 to the present day. Visually rich, the talk looks at the links between cemeteries and railways, including the Necropolis service to Brookwood. Of particular interest to MMT members, Nicolas will include some burials in Mausolea: E.g. the one near Maldon, Essex, for the Champion de Crespigny family (which sadly no longer exists); and the movement by train for the reburial of the Prince Imperial at Farnborough Abbey.
