A funeral ceremony for a popular Cockermouth man believed to have been hit and killed by a train will take place on Monday.
Andrew Mayall, 47, was reported missing on March 26, but on the next day British Transport Police said they believed he was the person hit by a train at Penrith Railway Station.
His funeral ceremony will take place at the Kirkgate Centre, Cockermouth, at 12.45pm on Monday.
Family members will give tributes, and some of Mr Mayall’s favourite music will be played.
That will be followed by a burial at Cockermouth Cemetery.
Will Tillotson, funeral celebrant, said: “This will be a wonderful celebration of Andy’s life.
“We are there to mark the tragic loss, but we are also there to celebrate the life of a wonderful husband, father and son.”
Mr Mayall worked as a baker at The Coffee Kitchen in Challoner Street, Cockermouth.
His previous jobs included running Cockermouth Youth Hostel.
