Fans and well-wishers lined the street to see Jimmy's cortege turned the corner from Bloomfield Road and drive slowly towards his beloved church, where he played the organ and was treasurer and warden, at around 12.30pm.
Traffic was stopped and the crowd fell silent as Jimmy's coffin was carried inside, minutes after respects were also paid at his former club's stadium, where no man has ever graced the pitch more times than him.
The cortege entered the north-east corner of the ground before driving down the side of the pitch, pausing beside the Armfield stand, and exiting through the south-east corner.
The players lined up to form a silent guard of honour before fans gave Jimmy a standing ovation as he continued on his final journey.
Jimmy, former Blackpool and England captain, respected broadcaster, philanthropist, loved family man, and dear friend to man, died on Monday, January 22, after a long fight against cancer.
He was 82.
The funeral service is being broadcast live on BBC Radio Lancashire.
