There will be no open casket viewing. The hearse will briefly stop outside the family home at 87 Woodville Road, Thornton Heath Surrey CR7 8LP before continuing on to the East Chapel.

As there are no more public funerals or wakes due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the community will not be able to come together to reminisce the life of Sukesini Vidyasagaran, which will be sorely missed. Mangalan, a noted figure within the community has been serving the community, in particular attending to the communities at the times of need.

In regards to funeral, the government have asked that people should only attend the funerals of members of their household, close family members, or friends who will not have any family at the service. Therefore, the family requests to keep Sukesini Vidyasagaran in your prayers. To show your love and appreciation the family has set up a fundraising page JustGiving page.
