The theme tune to the series that made actor George Cole a TV favourite has been played at his funeral.
Cole, who died on 5 August aged 90, was best known as Cockney wheeler-dealer Arthur Daley in Minder, a role he played for 15 years from 1979 to 1994.
Dennis Waterman, his co-star for more than a decade, is reading a eulogy at the ceremony, which began at Reading Crematorium at 11:30 BST.
The upbeat song “I Could Be So Good for You” was a hit for Waterman in 1980.
Cole was “surrounded by his family” when he died at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, his agent has said.
His signature role, as the small-time crook who dreamt of bigger things, regularly drew audiences of 17 million for the ITV show.
Cole, who lived in Stoke Row near Henley, Oxfordshire, also played Flash Harry in four St Trinian’s films between 1954-66, starred opposite Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in Cleopatra, as well as gothic horror The Vampire Lovers.
He began acting in the early 1940s, appearing with Lawrence Olivier in The Demi-Paradise, and taking a small role in Olivier’s star-studded Henry V.
