Over the weekend, Captain Sir Thomas Moore was finally laid to rest in Britain. Only his immediate family attended the veteran’s funeral due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions.


On Saturday, February 27, 2021, Captain Sir Thomas Moore’s funeral was held in Bedford, England. “ITV News” shared the more than one-hour-long funeral service starting with the veteran’s coffin entrance.

Soldiers of the Yorkshire Regiment carried Moore’s casket to pay tribute to his years of service. The British World War II veteran’s coffin was carried all the way aloft into the crematorium.

Moore was a veteran who raised millions of dollars for healthcare workers, for those who don't know him. He walked around his home’s yard one-hundred times at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

The beloved star, affectionately known as Captain Tom, raised almost £33 million or $45 million for his efforts last year. He ended up earning celebrity status late in his life.


Moore’s self-less act also earned him a military promotion when the Queen honored him by knighting him. Sadly, the veteran also became a statistic when he tested positive for COVID-19 this year.

His coffin was draped with the Union flag after he died at 100 (he got 125,000 birthday cards last year). The star died earlier last month, and during his funeral, he got a flypast of a World War II-era plane.


“CNN” shared how Moore was paid tribute to by a firing squad at his memorial. The squad made up of fourteen people fired three rounds in unison before the veteran’s small service began.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, his service was only attended by immediate family members. Those present included his daughters, Lucy Teixeira and Hannah Ingram-Moore, his sons-in-law, and four grandchildren.


His funeral service began with the charity song he’d recorded with the NHS Voices of Care Choir and Michael Ball. The hit track was aptly titled "You'll Never Walk Alone.”

Other songs were included during the service, like a specially recorded version of Michael Bublé’s “Smile.” "I Vow to Thee My Country" by Alfie Boe and "The White Cliffs of Dover” by Dame Vera Lynn were also played.


Moore’s daughter, Teixeira, gave a touching eulogy to her late father at the event. CNN revealed that the veteran’s family would inter Moore's ashes in Yorkshire once COVID-19 restrictions allowed it.

The late star was set to rest in the family plot with his parents and grandparents. He sadly passed away on February 2, 2021, with his family taking to his Twitter page to announce the heartbreaking news.
