Nicolas’s book on funeral trains, published in October 2020, focussed on the 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 the 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.
Where: Online - details of the link will be circulated shortly before the event.
Price: Members may attend free*. Guests: £5.00
