Experiences of the Great War

Haig's death, 1928

Earl Haig's death and funeral genuinely touched the nation, and the newspapers were full of features about his life. Thousands of ex-servicemen lined the streets of London and Edinburgh to pay their respects.

His remains were transported by train from Westminster Abbey to St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh, and were eventually laid to rest at Dryburgh Abbey in the Haig family's ancestral homeland.
