Lord Callaghan, Labour's last prime minister, will represent the Queen at the funeral, which is also expected to attract large crowds outside the church.
The service, conducted by Mr Smith's local minister, the Rev George Munro, is to be relayed live to the Methodist Central Hall in London and other centres round the country. It will also be broadcast live on radio and television. European party leaders, past and present, will attend.
Mr Smith will be buried on the island of Iona tomorrow.Reuse content
