The All Saints Cathedral is just off University Avenue on Tower Road (now known as Martello Street.) The funeral cortege headed to Camp Hill Cemetery up Tower Road (Martello Street) where the photographs were taken alongside Victoria Park. ( The power line poles identify this area between Tower Street and South Park Street. The next power lines run along Robie Street, and buildings would therefore be in the background, even back in 1940. )

Then left on to Spring Garden Road, then right onto Carleton Street and through the Carleton Street gates in to Camp Hill Cemetery. Howes grave is just through the cemetery gates and is situated on the right hand side. Military funerals always go left, then right.
