Scope and content
This series contains items concerning events held in Westminster Abbey which directly concern the Royal Family, such as Coronations, Weddings and Funerals, as well as a small number of additional events such as coronation and wedding anniversaries. Not all events attended by the Royal Family are held in this series and such events where a representative of the Royal Family was present but the event had a different primary focus are held elsewhere in the Westminster Abbey collection, as best suits their primary theme.
