Correction - the funeral is indeed on a Tuesday, the 23rd November, not the 26th,mea culpa, which is a Friday.
Apparently the funeral is by ticket only - they don't want the average faithful wandering in as can happen at any normal requiem mass.
However, the funeral will be live streamed, but at the moment there doesn't seem to be any link to live streaming on the cathedral website
I would guess the [empty] casket will be received into the Cathedral the previous day.
Sir David Amess MP, who died in October, was involved with the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Funerals and Bereavement (APPG) for some years and had held the post of vice-chair.
well fancy that!

I would also guess a firm from Milton Keynes, prop John O'Looney, didn't get the job.
Jeremy Field, Managing Director of CPJ Field ** and a Past President of the National Association of Funeral Directors, worked closely with Sir David on the APPG and paid tribute to his passion as an MP....Sir John Hayes MP, Chair of the APPG and a good friend of Sir David....,

The little known All Party parliamentary funerals group:
Sir John has recently written to the criminals in charge of our current "health emergency" asking for guarantees that one will not need a vaxx passport to attend a funeral

.....[one can see that coming, another piece of coercion to get inducted into the cult]
We are therefore seeking reassurance that funerals are exempt from the proposed vaccine passport scheme and will not be classified as mass gatherings.
Sounds like the "proposed" passport scheme is a slam dunk.
