Only Fools And Horses actors Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst were among the guests at the funeral of their co-star Roger Lloyd-Pack on Thursday (13Feb14). Lloyd-Pack, best known for his role as road sweeper Trigger in the British sitcom, died of pancreatic cancer last month (Jan14), aged 69. His friends and family paid their last respects at a memorial service in London on Thursday, with guests including his former castmates Jason, Lyndhurst, Gwyneth Strong, who played Cassandra, John Challis, who played Boycie, and Sue Holderness, who played Marlene. Actresses Miranda Richardson, Alison Steadman and Kathy Burke and former model Twiggy also joined the congregation, alongside Lloyd-Pack's daughter, A River Runs Through It star Emily Lloyd. Lloyd-Pack's coffin arrived at St. Paul's Church in Covent Garden in a gleaming pink hearse and his wicker coffin was adorned with flowers and his trademark trilby hat. The actor - who played Trigger from 1981 to 2003 - was also known for portraying clueless farmer Owen Newitt in British comedy The Vicar Of Dibley, as well as his role in the Harry Potter franchise.
