Mortgaged his grave for the Cup Final


April 30, 1914
It is stated that a Burnley man mortgaged a grave he owned in the public cemetery in order to go to the Cup Final. That may mean that he will have to postpone his internment, but if you go in for one luxury it often means that you must renounce another for a time.
(Evening Express: April 30, 1914)
