Nelson's funeral procession on the Thames, 9 January 1806
A panoramic view showing the funeral procession of Lord Nelson on the River Thames, to the Admiralty in Whitehall, after his lying in state at the Royal Hospital for Seamen at Greenwich. His body was placed inside four coffins. The inner one was of wood from the mainmast of the French flagship 'L'Orient', destroyed at the Battle of the Nile (1798). This was cased in lead with an outer wooden coffin, the whole having lain in state in a gilt outer casket designed by the Ackermann brothers. Thus enclosed the body was carried from Greenwich to Whitehall Stairs on a black-canopied funeral barge and was accompanied by over sixty boats including the barge of the Lord Mayor, admiralty and city livery barges.
