Funeral Was Standing Room Only

The funeral of Maggie Ward, grandmother of 172, drew a crowd.

Although they have never all been together in one place before, every single one made sure they were at the ceremony to give the 87-year-old a good send-off.
In life, staunch Irish Catholic Mrs Ward and her husband Charles created one of Britain's largest families with 15 children of their own.

All 12 surviving children - Joan, Patrick, Martin, Margaret, Mary, Catherine, Charlie, Bernard, Bridget, Helen, Anne and Lawrence - were at her funeral yesterday.

The vast clan also includes 36 great grandchildren and 18 great-great grandchildren. [Link]
