R.I.P Graham Taylor Funeral (Full Video) HD 2017
Several roads were closed in the town for the funeral of Watford legend.
The service will be relayed via Big video screens to those outside the St Marys Church on the high street, with significant interest expected from members of the public wishing to pay their respects.
It will be followed by a private family committal later in the day.
For those who are not present on the day, a tribute event is in the planning stages to be held at Vicarage Road in the summer - shortly after the conclusion of the Premier League season, which finishes on May 21.

Graham Taylor deserves to be remembered as the football manager who enlivened the English game between 1977 and 1987 by taking Watford, a venerable but hitherto nondescript club, from the Fourth Division to the First, where they finished runners-up to the mightiest of Liverpool sides, and to the FA Cup final, all the while encouraged by an enthusiastic chairman, the football-loving pop singer Elton John.
