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.
