      More than 200 people attended the funeral of a former serviceman following a Facebook appeal, amid fears he would be buried without mourners.
      James McConnell died last month aged 70 and staff at his care home in Southsea, Hampshire, were concerned they would be the only people at his funeral.
      But word spread after messages were posted on Facebook about the funeral at Milton Cemetery, Portsmouth.
      The Reverend Bob Mason thanked mourners for their kindness.
