Funeral of children who died in house fire to be held next week

The funeral of four young children who died in a house fire in Stafford takes place in the town next week.

Riley John Holt, aged 8, Keegan Jonathan Unitt, aged 6, Tilly Rose Unitt, aged 4, and Olly Unitt aged 3 died in the fire at the property on Sycamore Lane in Highfields on 5 February.

A private service will take place at Stafford crematorium next Tuesday (12 March), which will be for family and close friends only.

A procession will progress through Highfields estate from around midday and then on through Silkmore Lane, Radford Bank and Baswich Lane to the crematorium. 

The family have suggested members of the public might wish to show their support by putting teddy bears or similar children’s toys in their windows on Tuesday in memory of the children. 

A memorial service is also being planned for a future date, where the local community will be welcomed.
