    In my view, the finest and classiest send off anyone could wish for.

    That music, coupled with the readings, the poetry and words confirm, if confirmation were ever needed, that we are a very special club.

    VERY proud to be a Wolves fan, that was class from start to finish!

    Thanks for posting the link Essex, that was an amazing service.

    I particularly loved the speech from Rachael Hayhoe-Flint. :)

    Wolves got it just right, as they always do on such occasions.

    The arrangements outside were very good as well. Numerous Council staff had volunteered to help organise health and safety in Queen Square and no traffic other than the funeral cortège was allowed in the area.

    A good touch was the handout of Order of Service A4 sheets to the public which had a photograph of Sir Jack on the front and full details of the Service on the back. Something I will keep and remember.

    If I can get them in there, there will also be some of the display cards that were held up in the upper Steve Bull. A very fitting photo of Sir Jack on the reverse side.

    Hello PumpKing. Where is the fanzone mate as I wouldn't mind one of those cards? I was in the BW that game so I didn't get one.

    Yes, a very nice touch and keep sake, for people following the service on the big screen outside.

    Thank you for the link Essex.

    What a funeral, real class and not a dry eye in our house.

    Does anybody know whether Sir Jack was buried or cremated and if buried the name of the cemetery so that my family and myself can
    pay our respects when we come up to Wolvo next time.

    This says it all for me. Now all we need is an appropriately classy statue of the great man.

    Watching and listening to Jez Moxey on local TV on the evening after the funeral he said Sir Jacks ashes were to be spread in several places including Molineux.

    There is a family crypt in St Johns Church in Wolverhampton but it appears Sir Jacks remains will not be placed there.

    Hope you got a card at the game Tony, we gave out around 6000 inside the ground today, so hopefully you got one.
    If not let me know if you didn't and I'll get one to you. Same applies to everyone.
