THE family of Ivan Marks has moved the funeral service to Leicester Cathedral because around 1000 people are expected to attend.

Gilroes Crematorium in Leicester, the original venue, can only accomodate a maximum of 500 people.

The service will now take place at 1.15pm on Wednesday 15th, and although there is an NCP car park nearby, parking is not expected to be easy and those going are advised to allow plenty of time. You are advised to try the NCP car park above the Holiday Inn.

A celebration of his life will take place at the Walkers Stadium Sportsman’s Bar after the funeral service.

A tribute to the great man’s life will appear in the issue of Midland Angler and Southern Angler out in the second week of January.
