Jean Alexander's funeral to be a private service

The funeral of Coronation Street star Jean Alexander will be a private service for family and friend says the Liverpool Echo.

Jean, who played Hilda Ogden in Corrie, was fiercely protective of her personal life and had told family of her wishes for a private ceremony.

The actress never married but is survived by her older brother, Kenneth Hodgkinson, 91, and his two daughters, Sonia Hearld, 64, and Valerie Thewlis, 60.

Mrs Hearld said: “In accordance with Jean’s wishes a small private funeral has been arranged and we ask that members of the press and public respect her privacy and remember her in their own way at this sad time.”
