Abram Wilson, who lived in Rotherhithe, died last month at St Thomas' Hospital aged 38.

His funeral was held in Utica, Mississippi, so Wednesday's service at St John's Waterloo gave his many London friends and colleagues an opportunity to pay tribute.

The service – led by Canon Giles Goddard – was preceded by a New Orleans-style procession from the National Theatre on the South Bank.

The Abram Wilson Foundation has been established in memory of the musician.
