Can a Catholic funeral be held on Holy Thursday?

Answer

No, funeral Masses are not permitted on Holy Thursday.
General Instruction of the Roman Missal:

It may be celebrated on any day except for Solemnities that are holy days of obligation, Thursday of Holy Week (Holy Thursday), the Paschal Triduum, and the Sundays of Advent, Lent, and Easter, with due regard also for all the other requirements of the norm of the law.
