Mourners gathered to pay their respects to a much-loved football fan.
Lee Calton, 37, passed away at his home in King George V Avenue, King's Lynn, on April 15.
King's Lynn Town FC, who he had followed for more than 25 years, said he was "a well-known, well-liked, well-respected" supporter.
On Thursday family, friends and fellow fans gathered at the Swan Inn, in South Wootton, where the funeral cortege paused for 10 minutes.
Afterwards, the procession continued to Mintlyn Crematorium for a family service. Numbers at funerals remain restricted because of lockdown.
Mr Calton's sister Jodie said: "It was the best send-off he could have had in the current circumstances. It was lovely to see such an outpouring of love for him - it was what he deserved."
Last week Lynn was lit up in the Linnets' blue and yellow, while there was a minute's applause before last Saturday's game at The Walks.
