The ceremony will be conducted by humanist celebrant Lorraine Barrett and the public are invited to attend. A full order of service will be announced in the coming days.


Following the funeral ceremony at the Senedd there will be a service of committal at the Wenallt chapel, Thornhill Crematorium the following day on Thursday 1st June at 14.00.  Again, all are welcome.


People wishing to attend the funeral ceremony at the Senedd are advised to arrive early to allow for security checks to be carried out. The Senedd will be open from 9.30. Space in the building will be limited, however, the service will also be relayed outside via speakers and on Senedd.TV


Due to the Champions League finals taking place in Cardiff, extra security measures around the Senedd are in place and may cause delays with traffic and access.


Parking in Cardiff Bay is available at Mermaid Quay, the Red Dragon Centre, the Havannah Street car park and the Pierhead Street car park.


A book of condolence will remain open at the Senedd for people to pay their own personal tributes to the former First Minister, who died last week aged 77.
