Crowds Of Mourners
Winston Churchill died on 24 January 1965. A state funeral was held six days later, and crowds lined the streets from Westminster to St Paul's Cathedral to watch the funeral procession. Spectator Edwin Goodall shot this amateur film of the procession on his 8-millimetre camera. From his position in the crowd at Ludgate Hill near St Paul's Cathedral, Goodall captured the Household Cavalry, the funeral carriage and members of Churchill's family. This footage has no sound.
The Union Flag which was draped over Churchill’s coffin during the funeral is on display in the Churchill Museum at Churchill War Rooms.
