Default Coles Funeral * February 25, 1891

Maybe its me, but I think its astounding that 20,000 people were estimated to have been at the cemetery for Coles' burial.
Its not the only time this appears in contemporary newspaper accounts either...some from different newspaper agencies altogether.

Name a prostitute or proletarian/working class woman or man in which 20,000 people were estimated to have attended their burial....

How many were at Mary Kelly's funeral? The streets were lined for that. It was a long way to the cemetery so maybe not so many were actually at that spot.
