Wheatley, Nicolas2020
Books
This history reveals the story of why and how trains have been used to transport the coffins of the dead, enabling their burial in a place of significance to the bereaved. From royalty, aristocrats and other VIPs (including Sir Winston Churchill and the Unknown Soldier) to accident victims and ordinary people, it explores the way in which these people made their final journey by train before being laid to rest.
