The Royal Albert Edward Infirmary, Wigan, 1938


Sheila Marsh’s dying wish was to say goodbye to the horse she loved for 25 years. Staff at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan wheeled her bed to the car park. Nurse Gail Taylor explains what happened next: “The horse, Bronwen, walked steadily towards Sheila. Sheila gently called to Bronwen and the horse bent down tenderly and kissed her on the cheek as they said their last goodbyes.” Sheila passed away hours later.
