A life in pictures
Henry Allingham was born in London on the 6th June 1896 - his father died when he was 14 months old. The death of Japanese man Tomoji Tanabe earlier this year meant that Mr Allingham became the oldest man in the world.
The size of St Nicholas Church means that all of the seats are to be restricted to invited guests. A screen will be erected in the church grounds to allow people to watch the service and take part from outside the church. The organisers ask that you are in place by 11.30am. They say they would welcome people lining the route to pay respects as the funeral cortege passes. It will set out from St Dunstan’s at Ovingdean at 11.15 am, travelling along the seafront, past Brighton Pier, then up West Street, past the clock tower and onto Dyke Road.
