Items used during Elvis Presley's funeral are going under the hammer. The Hound Dog hitmaker passed away in 1977, and he was laid to rest at his sprawling Graceland compound in Memphis, Tennessee. Presley's father Vernon personally asked gospel singer J.D. Sumner to organise the funeral, and he compiled a handwritten list of songs and speakers for the event. The list, as well as a personalised Bible given to him by Reverend Rex Humbard, who officiated at the funeral, are going up for sale through U.S. memorabilia company Moments in Time. Both the notes and Bible are on sale together for $95,000 (£55,489).
