Barbara Windsor funeral: Husband and Ross Kemp lead mourners as they say bye to Babs

Kate Lee, CEO of Alzheimer’s Society, praised the actress and her other half for their fundraising efforts and said: “We will be forever grateful to them for sharing their dementia experience so bravely and publicly raising awareness of what it’s like to live through this devastating disease.

“Dame Barbara was a truly extraordinary woman and our thoughts are with her and Scott’s family and friends.

“We urgently need to find a cure, improve care and offer help and understanding for people affected. Alzheimer’s Society is here for anyone affected by dementia.”

A JustGiving page set up as a tribute to Dame Barbara and in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK has so far raised more than £145,000, reaching more than £150,000 with Gift Aid, and people have the option of donating in lieu of flowers.
