The Order of Service for the Funeral of The Right Honourable Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill K.G., O.M., C.H., 1965
Winston Churchill died on January 24, 1965—seventy years to the day after his father. Queen Elizabeth, in a rare tribute to a commoner, accorded to him a state funeral. Churchill's family selected a few of his lifelong-favorite hymns to be sung at the service. Among them was Julia Ward Howe's magnificent song from the American Civil War, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
