Robin Gibb could be honoured with public memorial service at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral

Robin Gibb, the Bee Gees singer and songwriter who died last week aged 62 (May 20), could be remembered with a public memorial service at St Paul's Cathedral in London. The pop legend is to be buried next month at a private funeral in Oxfordshire. However, his son Robin-John has suggested that a larger memorial service could take place in September at the historic central London cathedral. Gibb's son also told the Sunday Express that his father, who had suffered with cancer in recent years, died of kidney failure, and recalled his passing.

Robin Gibb, the Bee Gees singer and songwriter who died last week aged 62 (May 20), could be remembered with a public memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The pop legend is to be buried next month at a private funeral in Oxfordshire. However, his son Robin-John has suggested that a larger memorial service could take place in September at the historic central London cathedral.

Gibb’s son also told the Sunday Express that his father, who had suffered with cancer in recent years, died of kidney failure, and recalled his passing.

“We watched him go and told him we loved him,” he said. “The end was peaceful and dignified… It was only later that I cried and cried.”
