Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

How many of the men who were killed during the Zulu War had their bodies shipped home and received a burial back in England?

I have only found three so far.

Prince Louis Napoleon
Lieutenant-Colonel Francis V. Northey, 60th
Captain E. V. Wyatt Edgell, 17th Lancers

Lieutenant Anstey, E. D.

"Lieutenant Anstey's remains were subsequently recovered from the battlefield by his brother, Captain Thomas Anstey, Royal Engineers, who had them conveyed to England 10th April 1880, and had them interred in Woking, Surrey. On 22nd April 1880, a letter by his father, G A Anstey, appeared in 'The Times' newspaper:
'Sir, A notice has appeared in an evening paper and has been copied thence into a morning paper, purporting to be an account of the burial of my son, the late Lieutenant Edgar Oliphant Anstey, of the 1st Battalion 24th Regiment. I am impelled by indignation to this at me and mine most offensive publication to request that you may kindly find space in 'The Times' for the following: Lieutenant Anstey was killed at the slaughter of Isandlana (sic) on the 22nd January, 1879. His remains, together with those who fell around him, received hasty interment some months later at the hands of their comrades of the 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment, who were then quartered at Rorke's Drift.
His brother, aided by Lieutenant Armitage, 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment, who had on the occasion of the first interment identified the remains of my son, subsequently removed them from the spot where he fell. After being brought home they were buried, on the 10th instant, in the family vault in the little churchyard of St John's, near Woking Station. The ceremony was purposely strictly private, members of my family, including myself and two daughters, alone being present."

Hi POT .
I dont know the number but was surprised there were four ! . I knew of the Prince and Anstey but didnt realise
Northey & Wyatt-Edgell's remains were shipped home ! . Only guessing on my behalf but I doubt there are anymore .
Most happy to be corrected , Graves and Rai will certainly know of any extras .
90th.

Northey is buried in Epsom Cemetery
Wyatt-Edgell was re intered in 1879, I believe in the family vaults at Stanford Hall.

Cheers
