Brian was buried at a Jewish cemetery in Liverpool. It was a strictly family affair, and The Beatles weren’t invited. “Queenie was worried that the crowds would get out of hand if they did,” said Taylor. “There was one comical moment at the service. Brian’s body had travelled up from London by road. It was delayed and Cilla, Gerry Marsden and I were among the other family members when there was a long and unexplained delay. Time dragged on at the sad occasion as the coffin simply did not arrive and Gerry whispered to me behind his hand, ‘Trust Brian to be late for his own funeral.’ I had a job to suppress my laughter, but it was a respectful joke. Brian always had a reputation for not being terribly punctual.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
