A South London Funeral

I didn't know Mark Side, the East Dulwich dad who was recently killed in a motorbike crash in Evelyn Street, Deptford. But his funeral at Lewisham crematorium last week sounds like quite an event, hailed in the Southwark News as 'one of south London's biggest funerals for a generation'. I like this SE15 floral tribute (he grew up in Peckham), apparently there was also one that said 'Fuck It'. The latter put me in mind of the funeral in 2006 of Andy Kelly, an old South London punk, where they played Firestarter by The Prodigy as the coffin rolled.

I love these South London funerals; growing up in the provinces, I never saw anything like this 'til I came to London.
