    The knighthood is a LIFETIME honor that dies with the holder, there being no procedure to posthumously revoke an OBE or knighthood since these honors automatically expire when a person dies.

    According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Savile , there are 300 potential victims .

    It cant be revoked after his death, as the title dies with him.

    No. He was a good friend to the Conservative Party.

    Apprently according to the BBC TV show QI once you die you are no longer classed as a Knight. Whether you believe QI is up to you mate
