Bob Crow's funeral 'will be a private affair'

Mick Cash, the RMT's senior assistant general secretary, said Mr Crow's death had rocked the trade union movement, both in this country and around the world.

The thousands of messages of condolence from every part of the globe are a testament to the courage, leadership and strength that Bob shared with so many people.

Whilst Bob Crow's funeral itself will be a strictly private affair, his friends and family recognise that many people will want to show their solidarity, respect and support, both on the day itself and on May Day.

These arrangements give everyone a chance to play their part.

Trade unionists from across the country will attend the funeral of rail union leader Bob Crow today.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union said Mr Crow's family have asked for the funeral service at the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium to be private.

But trade unionists, friends and colleagues of Mr Crow, will be invited to line the route of the funeral procession.

The procession will include trade union banners and flags and will end at the cemetery gates.
