The hour-long service opened with Beethoven’s Ode to Joy and was followed by a prayer and the hymn Guide me, O thou Great Redeemer.
A family guest at the service, told the national publication: “It was absolutely wonderful, and Damian was fantastic in organising it despite his grief. Gully played the guitar and Manon read and all the other actors who acted with her, and of course the director of her first play in the National, was here.
“We knew that she had been ill for a very long time. Battled her way through it, Peaky Blinders, other plays.
“And at the end of it she died at home with Damian and everybody around her just organising everything, including this [the memorial]”, a source told the MailOnline.
