A host of former colleagues and current Conservative MPs from East Anglia will be among those paying their respects to Baroness Thatcher.
Life peer and former Mid-Norfolk MP Lord Ryder will be among those attending the service.
But Baroness Shephard of Northwold, a former secretary of state and colleague of Margaret Thatcher is unable to attend because she will be at the funeral of an extremely close friend.
A host of the region's Conservative MPs, including North West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham, who served as a backbench MP under Mrs Thatcher, will also be among congregation.
South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon, Waveney MP Peter Aldous, Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman, South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss and Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis, will also be guests at the funeral.
