    This clip shows the funeral for fireman Raymond Laycock, killed while tackling a blaze on Coronation Street in Blackpool on 7 October 1936.

    The church they're entering is St John's Church on Church Street in Blackpool.

    Wonderful to know the name of the fireman. We've added this to the description. Thank you very much.
