 Presley’s father Vernon personally asked singer J.D. Sumner to organise the funeral, and he compiled a handwritten list of songs and speakers for the event.

The list, as well as a personalised Bible given to him by Reverend Rex Humbard, who officiated at the funeral, are going up for sale through US-based memorabilia company Moments in Time, reports contactmusic.com.

Both the notes and Bible are on sale together for $95,000.
