An aerial view of the funeral procession of Emily Wilding Davison approaching Victoria on the 14 June 1913. On 4 June 1913 the suffragette ran onto the Derby race course in an attempt to stop the King's horse. Seriously injured, she never regained consciousness and died four days later.
The funeral procession, organized by Grace Roe, made its way in London to St. George's, Hart Street (now New Oxford Street) and Bloomsbury.
After a funeral service at St George's, Bloomsbury, the coffin was transported to King's Cross station and on by train to the Davison family home of Morpeth, Northumberland.
