Name that tune

The body of Iris Freud, who was 92 when she died, has been sitting in a mortuary for a month in London.

Her funeral was delayed while her son and daughter argued over what tunes should be played.

The dispute has now been settled in the High Court.

Her daughter wanted secular songs, including If You Were the Only Girl in the World.

Her son wanted religious music.

They’ve now agreed the ceremony will have two stages, separated by Iris’s burial.
