Stephen Hawking's funeral took place on Saturday following the physicist's death earlier this month.
While his funeral was ongoing, he still managed to bring smiles to the faces of 50 guests who were eating their Easter lunch nearby.
A charity who help the hungry in Cambridge received a donation in Stephen Hawking's name, enabling them to put on an extra special spread, with notes on every table telling the guests the meal was 'a gift from Stephen.'
There are reports that the physicist was given a cheer before the guests tucked into their meals.
