Funeral for Margaret Thatcher to take place next week

Have your say

The funeral of Margaret Thatcher will take place on Wednesday, April 17.

The ceremonial funeral, with military honours, will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, following a procession from Westminster.

It was announced yesterday (Monday) that Grantham-born Baroness Thatcher will not have a state funeral. The ceremonial funeral has been likened to those of the Queen Mother and Princess Diana.
