The parents charged with murdering their six children in a house fire will not attend the funeral, the family's priest has said.
Father Alan Burbidge, who will be conducting the service, said it will take place next week.
"We have had confirmation this morning that the parents of the six children will not be attending the funeral, which will take place at St Mary's Catholic Church at 11am BST on 22 June," he said.
Ten-year-old Jade Philpott and her brothers John, nine, Jack, eight, Jesse, six, and Jayden, five, all died in the blaze at their home in Victory Road, Derby, on 11 May.
Thirteen-year-old Duwayne survived the fire but died of his injuries at Birmingham Children's Hospital two days later.
The children's parents, Mick Philpott, 55, and 31-year-old Mairead, have been remanded in custody charged with six counts of murder.
The couple are due to reappear at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday.
The Prison Service would not confirm whether the pair have applied for leave to attend the funeral, but said a risk assessment would be carried out if an application was made.
A spokeswoman said: "We do not comment on the movements of individual prisoners.
"Prisoners can apply for escorted visits to attend the funeral of a close relative, but it will always be subject to a strict risk assessment."
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Nottingham said next week's ceremony would be followed by burials at Derby's Nottingham Road Cemetery.
"The family have chosen that church as a venue because they are Catholic children and they wanted a full Requiem Mass," Father Burbidge said.
The bodies of the children were released earlier this week, and an inquest into their deaths was opened and adjourned at Derby Coroner's Court last month.
