The funeral of the assassinated British MP Amessa will take place in Westminster Cathedral

Amessa, who died at the age of 69, was stabbed deadly on October 15 during a meeting with citizens in his constituency in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.

The funeral of the assassinated British Conservative MP David Amess will take place on 23 November at Westminster Cathedral in London. The ceremony will be led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, head of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales.

The details of the funeral were confirmed by members of both houses and other British parliamentary staff attending Catholic services there, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

Amessa, who died at the age of 69, was stabbed deadly on October 15 during a meeting with citizens in his constituency in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. They accused a 25-year-old British of Somali descent of murder and plotting a terrorist act. The trial will begin in March.

Amess was the father of five children and one of the oldest members of the House of Commons of the British Parliament. He has been a Member of Parliament for Southend West since 1997, and previously represented Basildon County since 1983. He has long advocated Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.

His assassination has raised concerns among politicians, as it was the second such attack on a member of the British Parliament in years; in June 2016, during the campaign before the Brexit referendum, the attacker fatally shot and stabbed Labor MP Jo Cox.
