Jethro’s funeral arrangements

Funeral arrangements have been confirmed for legendary Cornish comedian Jethro, who died after contracting coronavirus earlier this month.

A Facebook post set out the finalised funeral arrangements for the comedian, real name Geoffrey Rowe, inviting fans and friends wishing to say their “final farewell” to stand along the route on Monday, January 3.

The funeral procession, outlined in the FB post, will begin from Jethro’s Club in Lewdown (EX20 4DS) at 10am, passing through Lifton at 10:10am and then continuing on to Truro.

At 11:30am, the procession will begin at the War Memorial, making its way to Truro Cathedral where the funeral service will commence at 12:00pm.

There will be speakers outside the cathedral relaying the service for those unable to find a seat inside. Following the public service, there will be a small private burial, in which the family ask everyone “to kindly respect our privacy and allow us to say our final goodbyes on our own.”

The post asked for no flowers to be brought to the service, instead there will be a charity collection box outside the cathedral from 11 am -1.30pm, accepting donations for the Children’s Hospice South West.
