Packed crowds for Hartley's funeral in Colne, Lancashire.<br />

And the band played on...<br />

Poignant reminder - Last letter from his parents found on the heroic violinist Wallace Hartleys body after the sinking of the Titanic is uncovered.<br />
<br />
The letter by Albion and Eilzabeth Hartley to their son Wallace Hartley was written the day before the 'unsinkable' liner left on its doomed maiden voyage in 1912.<br />
<br />
His father movingly signed off the letter with the words: "I hope that things will turn out for you alright."
