A private funeral has been held for the 6th Duke of Westminster , the Grosvenor Estate has confirmed.
Gerald Cavendish Grosvenor died of a heart attack on Tuesday (August 9), aged 64.
The Grosvenor Estate, which represents the duke's business interests, said a 'quiet, private funeral service', attended by close family members, was held yesterday (August 12). The location of the funeral was not revealed.
Details of a memorial service to be held later this year 'will be released in due course', a spokesman said.
He was conveyed to the Royal Preston Hospital where he sadly died.
Preston coroner’s office confirmed on Thursday that His Grace's death was due to heart attack.
A spokeswoman for the coroner said there would be no inquest because the cause of death was natural.
The duke, whose wealth is estimated at £9.35bn, is survived by his wife, the Duchess of Westminster, Natalia Grosvenor, his son and heir Hugh Grosvenor , who succeeds him as the seventh Duke of Westminster, and daughters Lady Tamara van Cutsem, Lady Edwina Grosvenor and Lady Viola Grosvenor as well as six grandchildren.
