The ghost of Lord Combermere

In Times Gone By...

Wellington Stapleton-Cotton, 2nd Viscount Combermere, died in St James’ Place, London on the 1st of December, 1891, seven weeks after being run over by a horse-drawn carriage.

On the day of his funeral, this photograph was taken by Sybell Corbet in the library in Combermere Abbey, Cheshire.

Despite claims one of the servants must have been sitting in the chair, they all claimed to have been miles away attending the funeral at the time the picture was taken.
