Excerpt from King Edward VII, His Life and Reign, Vol. 5: The Record of a Noble Career

Before describing the proceedings attendant on the accession of the new Sovereign, we deal with those which followed the decease of his predecessor. While the needful ceremonies were being enacted on the advent of King Edward the Seventh to the throne, the preparations for the funeral of Queen Victoria were in progress, and due recognition was being made of the great public loss sustained. The pall for the late Sovereign's coffin was embroidered at the Royal School of Art N eedlework at South Kensington. On January 27 the sermon at Westminster Abbey was preached by Dean Bradley on the texts: For David, after he had served his own generation, by the will of God fell on sleep and was laid unto his fathers, and Well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. At St. George's Chapel, Windsor, the Dean, Dr. Eliot, preached from: The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away At St. Paul's Cathedral, the Archbishop of Canterbury (dr. Temple) said in his sermon: 'ishe was a great Queen because she was so good a Queen. She respected our freedom, she won our hearts, she held high the standard of conscientious conduct before the eyes of all the world. Throughout the Empire, flags half mast, memorial services, and mourning attire recognized the event, testifying to the grief of the late Queen's subjects, while all hailed with joy and hope the accession of the new ruler.
