The funeral of the six Philpott children was held at St Mary's Church in Derby on Friday 22nd June at 11:00am. A cortege of six horse-drawn carriages carried their bodies to the church.
Each coffin was decorated with a motif relating to their lives. Each coffin also had the names of the children written across the side.
The Requiem Mass was officiated by Father Alan Burbidge. During the service there were several readings, hymns, psalms, prayers, and poems.
After the service the children were buried in a private service at Chaddesden Cemetery on Nottingham Road.
