Peaches Geldof’s funeral will take place on Easter Monday. The service will be held at St. Mary Magdalene and St. Lawrence Church in Davington, near Faversham, Kent. This is the same church that her mother, Paula Yates’s, funeral was held in September 2000.
Her father, Bob Geldof, and other family members are staying at his country home in Davington Priory, which is located next to the church. The service will be held between 11am and 1pm. It is unknown if there will be a burial or cremation. Those who are invited to attend the funeral service will be allowed to gather on the grounds of his home, and use a side gate which leads directly into the church. This will avoid the hassle of dealing with paparazzi and local residents. Peaches’ husband, Thomas Cohen, and their two sons are reportedly staying at his parents’ home in New Eltham, south-east London. An inside source said “The church holds the most bittersweet of memories for the Geldof family. They have had the best of times and the worst of times in that churchyard.” The couple was also married in the church, as well as her parents. In an interview with Hello! magazine, Peaches said she felt her mother’s presence in the church that day. “I feel her presence all the time but especially today. Mum loved family celebrations and she would adore Tom and the fact that we’ve married here. I know she is watching over me and feeling so happy for us.”
