Family and friends of Lincoln graduate Grace Millane will attend her funeral today after she was killed on a backpacking trip to New Zealand.
There will be a service held at Brentwood Cathedral at 11:30am on Thursday, January 10 before Grace is buried in Ramsden Bellhouse, a village close to the family home in Essex.
It will be a private day for those who were close to the former University of Lincoln student, where flowers will be laid by the family only.
As previously reported, the 22-year-old went missing during her trip around New Zealand before her body was found by local police as part of a murder probe.
The Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern held back tears as she apologised to the Millane family.
As part of the investigation into Grace’s death, a 26-year-old man was charged and appeared at court in New Zealand.
