    I am a scholar from India, and am presently writing a dissertation on Thomas Hardy and Religion in his Novels. This video came up while I was searching for material on the depiction of funerals in his works.

    I had absolutely no idea that Hardy's funeral was recorded on camera, or that I would ever be able to witness it. Thank you so much for this archive, it has really been the most interesting result of all that I have researched on Hardy.

    I hope to find more such video clips relating to English History and Literature.

    Thanks so much!

    We are very pleased you found it. It is incredible it was filmed. It's sad we don't have footage of Hardy when he was alive.

We always welcome comments and more information about our films.
