The funerals of six children who died as a result of a blaze at their home are to take place this morning.
The coffins of the Philpott chidren - Duwayne, 13, Jade, 10, John, nine, Jack, seven, Jessie, six, and five-year-old Jayden - will be brought to St Mary's Roman Catholic Church in Derby on six horse-drawn hearses.
Their parents, Mick Philpott, 55, and his wife Mairead, 31, are charged with murder and have been remanded in custody.
Derbyshire Police have said the couple will not be attending the funerals.
The eldest of Mick Philpott's 17 children have been at the forefront of planning the service after local people raised more than £13,000 to pay for the funerals.
A death notice placed in the Derby Telegraph by family members paid tribute to the youngsters.
It said: "They all touched the hearts of so many.
"Wonderful brothers and a beautiful special sister of David, Richard, Michaela, Mikey, Aiden, Jordon, Shareen, Katrina, Kirk, Yawrey and Josh.
"Much loved and precious grandchildren of Peggy and the late John Philpott and Jimmy and Vera Duffy.
"Sadly missed by uncles, aunts and families.
"They will be so greatly missed by us all. Please wear bright-coloured clothes only."
The youngest children perished in the fire at their house on Victory Road, Allenton, in the early hours of May 11 after suffering smoke inhalation. Duwayne died two days later at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
The funerals are due to take place at 11am after the cortege has passed through Allenton.
Father Alan Burbidge, who has known the family since baptising Duwayne 12 years ago, will conduct a full requiem mass.
As well as bible readings, prayers and hymns, the children's two head teachers and other members of staff were expected to pay tribute to the youngsters, and fellow pupils from their schools will also be attending.
Following the service the children will be buried at Chaddesden's Nottingham Road Cemetery.
On Wednesday, a 45-year-old man was arrested in connection with the deaths. He was released on police bail after questioning by detectives.
Shortly after the fire, police arrested a 38-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman who were released without charge the following day.
