The funeral

I suggest adding to your excellent article some mention of Charles Kingsley’s funeral which merely emphasises that he was already a national figure.

“Although the Dean of Westminster Abbey was keen for Charles Kingsley’s funeral to take place in the Abbey, his family knew that Charles wanted the sevice and burial to be at Eversley; Dean Stanley led the service in the presence of the Bishop of Winchester in addition to a large gathering of clergy and mourners as well as a Buckingham Palace dignitary representing the Prince of Wales.”

Best wishes,
