When I was at school they didn’t teach us anything about World War II; it was still too recent to be considered “history”. So for many years most of what I knew about Sir Winston Churchill came from watching his State Funeral when I was eight years old.

And today, watching Baroness Thatcher’s funeral, I learned stuff about her life, too, that I never knew before; for example, that she entered Parliament way back in 1959 - I had no idea it was so long ago.

I very much enjoyed the Bishop of London’s address; presumably there will be a transcript of it, but I liked the personal anecdotes, and using the lady’s own words to explain who she was. I also liked the way he seemed (or was it just me?) to liken people moving towards God in death as being "uploaded into the Cloud".
