The date has been set for the funeral of a much-loved actress.

Dora Bryan passed away last Wednesday, July 23, after being admitted to the Royal Sussex County Hospital with a chest infection.

She was 91.

Her funeral is planned for next Wednesday, August 6, at 3pm, at St George's Church in Kemp Town, followed by a private family cremation service.

Her relatives have already had so many cards they can't open their door, and have asked for family flowers only.

Donations can be made to the Raystede Centre For Animal Welfare and the local branch of the Alzheimer's Society.

Her son Daniel Lawton told The Argus: “Dad had Alzheimer's and the local branch were fantastic, and Mum did a lot of work with Raystede throughout her life.”
