Sir David Amess – The funeral service for Sir David that is taking place on Tuesday 23 November in Westminster Cathedral will be included in a special programme presented by Dave Monk from 12 noon, BBC Essex. This will include the memorial service broadcast live from 1pm. BBC Essex can be accessed via Essex – Listen Live – BBC Sounds or on FM radio frequency 103.5 FM or 95.3 FM.

The memorial funeral that will take place at St Mary’s Church, Prittlewell, on Monday 22 November is a family affair and strictly invitation only. Following the service, which will start at 1pm, the casket will be carried in a horse-drawn hearse through Southend’s streets, pausing outside the Civic Centre in Victoria Avenue and Iveagh Hall, Sir David’s Southend West Conversative Constituency office, in Leigh Road. Residents who do wish to pay their respects are asked to please spread out along the procession route, wear a face covering if you are able to and respect social distancing measures.
