All the figures, who are said to be modelled on prominent Derby town figures of the early sixties, surround and praise a central pane of the triumphant Christ.

When Nightingale moved on to the Crimea itself in May , she often travelled on horseback to make hospital inspections. She later transferred to a mule cart and was reported to have escaped serious injury when the cart was toppled in an accident. Following this, she used a solid Russian-built carriage, with a waterproof hood and curtains.
The carriage was returned to England by Alexis Soyer after the war and subsequently given to the Nightingale training school. The carriage was damaged when the hospital was bombed during the Second World War.

Florence Nightingale. It did not portray her as an entirely sympathetic character and draws much characterisation from Lytton Strachey 's biography of her in Eminent Victorians. In , a stage musical play representation of Nightingale entitled The Voyage of the Lass was produced by the Association of Nursing Service Administrators of the Philippines.
In , a biographical silent film titled The Victoria Cross , starring Julia Swayne Gordon as Nightingale, was released, followed in by another silent film, Florence Nightingale , featuring Elisabeth Risdon. Portrayals of Nightingale on television, in documentary as in fiction, vary — the BBC's Florence Nightingale , featuring Laura Fraser ,  emphasised her independence and feeling of religious calling, but in Channel 4's Mary Seacole : The Real Angel of the Crimea , she is portrayed as narrow-minded and opposed to Seacole's efforts.
As well as a standing portrait, she was depicted on the notes in a field hospital, holding her lamp. Nightingale had a principled objection to having photographs taken or her portrait painted. An extremely rare photograph of her, taken at Embley on a visit to her family home in May , was discovered in and is now at the Florence Nightingale Museum in London. The first biography of Nightingale was published in England in In , Edward Tyas Cook was authorised by Nightingale's executors to write the official life, published in two volumes in Nightingale was also the subject of one of Lytton Strachey 's four mercilessly provocative biographical essays, Eminent Victorians.
Strachey regarded Nightingale as an intense, driven woman who was both personally intolerable and admirable in her achievements. Cecil Woodham-Smith , like Strachey, relied heavily on Cook's Life in her biography, though she did have access to new family material preserved at Claydon. In , Mark Bostridge published a major new life of Nightingale, almost exclusively based on unpublished material from the Verney Collections at Claydon and from archival documents from about archives around the world, some of which had been published by Lynn McDonald in her projected sixteen-volume edition of the Collected Works of Florence Nightingale to date.
Several churches in the Anglican Communion commemorate Nightingale with a feast day on their liturgical calendars.
