I was sadly unable to attend Fr Kevin Knox-Lecky's requiem, but there is an account on the Clifton Latin Mass Society's web site, link here.
One of the important things to learn from this is not only to remember always to pray for the dead, but also to get your affairs in order.
Fr Kevin had clearly stated that he wanted his funeral to be in accord with the 1962 Latin Rites, and that is what he received, a sung Requiem Mass, attended in choir by the vast numbers of the Priests of my diocese and assisted by many, many of Christ's lay faithful. My Bishop, Declan Lang, attended, again in choir, and preached before the obsequies.

And if a Bishop will do it for one of his sons, what Bishop or Priest could stand in the way of the funeral rites of the Children of God?
