She went down big in Leamington

You have to feel sorry for the grieving relatives of Lady Wheeler, as she was carried to her grave in the English town of Leamington in 1893. The funeral attracted hundreds of gawpers from miles around. You also have to feel sorry for the dozen strong men who had to carry her to her grave.

This story made all the papers at the time. Not so good if it was your mum…
