The cists in Southover Church, 1845. Creator: Richard Henry Nibbs

The cists in Southover Church, 1845. 11th-century human remains found in the ruins of the ancient Priory of Lewes in Sussex, during the construction of a railway line. ...the workmen exposed a leaden Cist, or coffer, surrounded by a few square Caen stones. After clearing away the soil, the Cist was carefully removed, and, on being opened, was found to contain human bones, proved to be the remains of Gundreda, daughter of William the Conqueror, the name "GVNDRADA," as it is spelt, being cut upon the lid....'. A second cist was found, ...and on the lid is inscribed WILLMs, an old but usual way of writing Gulielmus. This has been readily interpreted into the name of William of Warren; by this means establishing the fact that these Cists contain the remains of Gundreda, the founder of the Priory, and of her lord, the first Earl of Warren and Surrey'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Burial of Edith Cavell, Brussels, Belgium, 1915

Burial of Edith Cavell, Brussels, Belgium, 1915. British nurse Edith Cavell (1865-1915) was appointed matron of the Berkendael Medical Institute, Brussels, in 1907. During the German occupation of Belgium in World War I, the Berkendael Institute was converted to a military hospital. In August 1915 Cavell was arrested by the Germans and tried and found guilty of assisting the escape of 200 Allied soldiers to neutral Holland. She was executed by a firing squad on October 12, 1915. She was buried in Brussels until after the war when her body was brought back to Britain for a memorial service at Westminster Abbey and then transferred to Norwich for re-burial.
