  • Description

    Location Unspecified

    Unedited material. Camera follows a funeral cortege as it passes behind a hedge and along a country road lined with cars. Several mourners look on. The car which carries the coffin stops close to the camera. C/U on faces of some of the mourners. The coffin is removed from the car. C/U of one of the pallbearers and other mourners. Two clergymen approach the mourners. Mourners are helped from a car (presumably the close family.) The coffin is wheeled along the church path. Mourners follow behind. The procession is seen from behind. It looks to be a small country church. Camera zooms in to the name plate on the coffin (not readable on this Steenbeck.) Churchyard. The funeral party emerges around the corner, walking very slowly through the churchyard. The coffin is carried by several men. C/U of family members. Coffin is lowered into the grave. C/U of nameplate. Vicar recites a sermon (no sound.) C/U of hand holding some earth. Elderly mourners stand around the grave. One man speaks. There is probably between 80 and 100 mourners at the funeral. C/U of the grave.

    Note: This reel catalogued from negative on Steenbeck without negative viewing facility therefore some details unclear. No documentation was attached with this footage.
