Goodbye To Jade: Funeral Held Today

by | 04 April 2009

Jade Goody's funeral will take place later today, two weeks after she lost her battle with cancer.

The 27-year-old reality TV star died in the early hours of March 22nd, Mother's Day, after losing her struggle with cervical cancer.

Her funeral cortege will tour significant sites in her life in east London before heading to Essex for the funeral service and burial.

Setting off from Rotherhithe the cortege will pass by where she grew up before heading across Tower Bridge to the East End.

It will then head to Jade's home in Upshire, Essex, where her mother Jackiey Budden – who was at the Big Brother star's bedside when she passed away – is due to join the cortege in a Bentley.

From there they will proceed to St John The Baptist Church in Buckhurst Hill for the service at 12:00 BST.

Among those giving tribute to Jade will be her widower, Jack Tweed, and publicist Max Clifford.

After her coffin is carried out of the church to the Beatles' Let It Be the burial will be completed at around 13:15 BST.
