Liz Dawn's family reveals funeral plans

The funeral of Coronation Street actress Liz Dawn will take place at Salford Cathedral on Friday October 6.

A statement from Dawn's family said: "The Requiem Mass and Holy Communion Service will begin at 2pm conducted by Father Brendan Curley, former Dean of Salford Cathedral and a friend to Liz and her family."

The TV star's family has also requested that donations be made in her memory to the British Lung Foundation and Breast Cancer Care UK.

Dawn, who played Vera Duckworth in the Salford-based ITV soap for more than 30 years, died earlier this week aged 77.

Her family said in a statement that she died peacefully on Monday night at home "with her loving family around her".

"She has been the love, light and inspiration in our lives and we are bereft at her passing."
