The final part of the Journey home was the funeral, this was held in the family home village of Eastchurch on the Isle of Sheppey Kent, this was one of the most emotional days of many lives, the whole Island came out to pay their respects to this young man and so many people lined the streets and attended the service below are some of the images of that day.
