The service for Jimmy Landamore will take place at 1.15pm at St Faith's Crematorium in Horsham Saint Faith, and a wake will follow at the Oaklands Hotel in Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew.

Mr Landamore, who lived in Salhouse, died in November aged 66. His son, Liam Landamore, said he expected 200-400 people to attend.

He said: "Everyone is welcome to both the funeral and wake. Dad would love everyone there talking about him and having a good drink on his behalf. There is a large private bar in the room and there will be plenty of food, something else he would love.

"I understand it's difficult but if people could give me an idea of attendance at the funeral and wake it would be appreciated."
