  • The cortege bearing Dame Vera’s coffin – which is draped in a Union flag – will make its way to the crematorium in Brighton.

    A tri-service route-lining party will wait outside the chapel, together with a military bearer party ready to receive the coffin.

    A bugler from the Royal Marines will provide a musical tribute inside the chapel, and the Ministry of Defence will be represented by a senior officer who, along with the bugler and the small family group, will be the only people to attend the funeral service.
