Tributes at Martin Crowe's funeral tomorrow will be led by his wife Lorraine Downes, brother Jeff Crowe and former international team-mate Ian Smith.

The details were released at a media briefing about the ceremony, being held at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Parnell.

The service will also feature a musical tribute from David Lyle Morris, who was described as Crowe's best friend.

The men were at Auckland Grammar together. Mr Morris was head prefect and Crowe his deputy.


Current students and staff from Auckland Grammar will form a guard of honour as Crowe's casket is carried from the cathedral after the service before the school's kapa haka group pays tribute.

The ceremony starts at 1pm. There is capacity for 1000 mourners.
