During the service, there were tributes by his family, including his wife, Nane Maria Annan.
The state hierarchy was in attendance, led by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
The former queen of the Netherlands, Princess Beatrix, and her daughter-in-law Princess Mabel, who were close friends of Annan, were among the mourners.
