More Info →Funeral procession in Broad Street

This photograph shows the back end of a train of mourner's carriages, Palmerston North. The hearse has passed into The Square. Such a long cortege indicates that a prominent local worthy must be lying in the hearse. It is thought that the funeral could be that of Richard Essex, a wealthy citizen who had served a brief term as Mayor of Palmerston North. His funeral procession, which was unusually large even for such a dignitary, proceeded down Broad Street, through The Square to All Saints, then back up Broad Street to the Terrace End Cemetery.
