“This ghost picture was taken in 1891 at the Combermere Abbey library in Cheshire in England. Lord Combermere died in 1891 after being killed in a horse and cart accident. This ghost picture was taken at the very moment his funeral was being held miles away. Yet, you can clearly see him sitting in the chair. The photographer reported that all of his family were attending the funeral so it was impossible for the person in the photo to be any of them. Making this a very old ghost picture, indeed.”
