Actress June Brown attends funeral of actress Hilda Braid

Actress Hilda Braid, who played the character of Nana Moon in EastEnders from 2002 to 2005, has had a very theatrical funeral.

Good friend June Brown (Dot Branning) joined mourners at Woodvale Crematorium in Brighton today to pay her respects.

Hilda’s white coffin arrived in a white horse-drawn carriage and the service ended with the EastEnders theme tune.

The mum-of-6 died earlier this month at the age of 78. She starred in Citizen Smith, Casualty, Man About The House and many other TV show as well as the BBC soap.

A floral tribute from the EastEnders cast and crew read: ‘You were a delight to work with and brought such joy to your colleagues and many fans as the wonderful Nana Moon.

‘May your dear soul rest in everlasting peace.’
