The funeral will take place at St. Mary's Church on Monk Street in Abergavenny and mourners have been told to wear bright colours to remember Carwyn - particularly blue, red and purple, which were his favourite colours.
The family has also said that donations in memory of Carwyn can be made to Wales Air Ambulance and Brecon Beacons Mountain Rescue. There will be a bucket collection at the service.
