The town of Machynlleth will come to standstill today as people pay their last respects to April Jones.
April disappeared when playing outside her home on the Bryn-y-gog estate in Machynlleth on 1st October last year.
She was never seen again and despite one of the biggest police searches ever mounted her body has never been recovered.
Mark Bridger was found guilty of her abduction and murder earlier this year. The 47-year-old paedophile is currently serving a whole life sentence.
A horse-drawn hearse will carry her coffin through the town before a service is held at St. Peter's Church. Local people, many of whom took part in the search to find her, are expected to line the main street.
April's parents, Paul and Coral Jones, have asked people to wear pink - her favourite colour - as a way of remembering her.
