The coffin of a homeless man who is thought to have died of hypothermia is being carried through Totnes today to highlight the plight of rough sleepers.
42-year-old Michael Gething, who was originally from Plymouth, had been sleeping rough in the town.
Four homeless people are believed to have perished outdoors in the last year.
The cortege will start at the bottom of the High Street, and the coffin will be carried around a mile to Follaton Cemetery. There will be no formal service.
The funeral party will stop en route to allow Big Issue seller Graham Walker to give a eulogy.
