The graves of Janet and James Carlyle, and their son Thomas, Ecclefechan

Thomas Carlyle had always detested noise and during his last illness Queen Victoria ordered the streets of Chelsea were to be covered in straw to deaden the noise of carriages.  He died on 5 February 1881, and despite the offer of a burial at Westminster Abbey, his instructions that his coffin was to be taken to Ecclefechan were carried out.
