Can anyone tell me the name and location of the church, where the funeral takes place, at the end of 'Miss Him When He's Gone', please?

Hi Howard

The "church" which you see Dora walk past with Gavin Foley was a cemetery chapel in New Wortley Cemetery in Leeds. The chapel has been demolished at some time since the series was filmed. I visited the cemetery last year and there is just an open space where the chapel stood. I managed to trace the exact location of Ed Foley's "burial" but one of the very distinctive headstones that can be seen in the screencaps has toppled over recently - the stone can still be seen on Google Street View.

 :(

Thank you! I only live about 10 miles from Leeds, so I might nip out there and take a look.

Thanks Johno - that's an interesting picture. I've found old pics of a few FF locations on the Leodis website (there's a good one of Lilian Street) but I hadn't spotted that one!
