Truro Cathedral packed for Jethro funeral

The funeral of Cornish comedian Jethro, real name Geoffrey Rowe, has been held at Truro Cathedral.

He died last month at the age of 73 after contracting Covid-19.

His funeral cortege, with a wicker casket in a 4×4, arrived at the cathedral from his club at Lewdown in Devon to applause from many fans.
The service was conducted by the Reverend Canon Alan Bashforth and Reverend Tim Hodge.

Hymns including The Old Rugged Cross and the traditional song Trelawny were sung, accompanied by Cornish folk band The Oggymen.

The service was relayed via loudspeakers to those outside the cathedral.
Donations instead of flowers are being made to Children’s Hospice South West
