Funeral to take place for children killed in Stafford house fire

The funeral of four young children who died in a house fire in Stafford is expected to take place on Tuesday (March 12).

The children died in the blaze which broke out in the early hours of Tuesday 5 February at a house at Sycamore Lane on the Highfields estate.

Family and close friends will attend Stafford crematorium for the funeral.

They say members of the public may wish to show their support by putting teddy bears or similar children’s toys in their windows in memory of the children.

A procession will progress through Highfields estate from around midday and then on through Silkmore Lane, Radford Bank and Baswich Lane to the crematorium.

A memorial service is being planned for a future date for the local community.
