The funeral for bushranger Ned Kelly has ended with tears and clapping as preparations get under way for his burial.
More than 300 people attended the requiem mass at St Patrick's Church in Wangaratta in Victoria's north-east.
The service took place near where the notorious bushranger was captured more than 130 years ago.
Kelly was hanged after the historic Glenrowan shoot-out with police in 1880.
His body was officially identified in 2011 and then a dispute began over who had rights over his remains.
Kelly's relatives won and the bushranger's last wish to be buried in consecrated ground has finally been granted.
Kelly's great-great-grand-nephew Brendan Cooke said for many years family members have suffered discrimination because they are related to the infamous bushranger.
He said the elders in the family have suffered a great deal and the funeral has given them some closure.
The hymn Kelly sang on his last night serenaded the congregation as family members carried his coffin outside.
Kelly's relatives say they do not consider Kelly a hero or a criminal but a man who deserved to be granted his dying wish.
He will be buried in an unmarked grave at Greta cemetery south of Wangaratta on Sunday, where his mother and several other relatives also lie.
