Footnote: Charing Cross, London. Its name is believed to derive from "Chere Reine", Queen Eleanor, wife of King Edward I. She died in 1290, and her body was brought from the North to London for burial, 12 large elaborate stone crosses were later erected at the places the cortege stopped for the night. The resting places for the Queen's coffin and therefore sites for memorial crosses were: Lincoln, Grantham, Stamford, Geddington, Hardingstone, Stony Stratford, Woburn, Dunstable, St. Albans, Waltham, Cheapside (West Cheap), Charing Cross; and finally the coffin would have arrived at Westminster Abbey for a state burial. Only three of the original memorial crosses now remain - at Geddington, Hardingstone and Waltham.
