The Moore veteran fired artillery from 14 soldiers in the Yorkshire Regiment to pay tribute, and got an air pursuit from a World War II plane.
Due to coronavirus restrictions, his coffin draped in the Union flag was transported by soldiers from the regiment to the crematorium in Bedford, east of England, past empty benches. Then, the soldiers dispatched and left his relatives to serve him. In the charity single recorded by Moore and Michael Ball, Moore heard the voice “You will never walk alone”.
Under current coronavirus restrictions, his immediate family members attended the funeral-two daughters Lucy Teixeira and Hannah Ingram-Moore, four grandsons and his daughter son .
Teixeira said: “Dad, I am proud of you. You have achieved achievements throughout your life, especially in the past year. You may be gone, but your message and spirit continue.”
Lucy said that her father would look at them at the funeral and smiled and said, “Don’t be too sad because things will eventually get you into trouble.”
At the moving ceremony, Alfie Boe’s performance “I Swear to Your Motherland” and Dame Vera Lynn’s “Dover White Cliffs” performed.
Once the Covid-19 restriction is obtained, the family will intern Moore’s ashes in Yorkshire, where he will rest on Moore family land with his parents and grandparents.
Moore’s fundraising efforts will be long-term related to Britain’s lockdown last spring. His death made him one of the most high-profile victims of the virus, which claimed the lives of more than 120,000 British people.
