Rick Parfitt was laid to rest at his funeral in Woking, Surrey, today
The guitarist was buried at Working Crematorium following his death on Christmas Eve aged 68.
Among the mourners were his two ex-wives Marietta Boeker and Patti Beedon, as well as his estranged wife Lyndsay.
Status Quo's former drummers Matt Letley, 55, and John Coghlan, 70, made an early arrival at the service, with the latter reuniting with Parfitt during the group's 2013 and 2014 reunion tours.

Status Quo made an early arrival at the late musician's service
Parfitt's legendary career spanned across half a century before he died from a severe infection while in a Spanish hospital following issues with a shoulder injury.
Before the infection, the musician had been unfortunate enough to suffer three heart attacks and a cancer scare.
Celebrating his career, grievers gifted him with wreaths shaped as guitars, while some wore what looked like backstage passes.
The funeral comes after the official Status Quo fan club, From the Makers Of, pleaded with fans of the band to not show up at the service.
