A horse-drawn carriage will carry the coffin of former Bee Gee Robin Gibb to his funeral in England on Friday.

The carriage will pass through his hometown of  Thame, in Oxfordshire, for the service at St Mary’s Church.

Gibb died last month due to kidney failure after a battle with cancer.

His family said in a statement: “At his wish, he will say a final goodbye to fans and his home town of Thame, Oxon, this Friday prior to the funeral.”

The funeral will be a private service for close family and friends.

The family have requested no flowers but donations can be made to either of the following children’s charities on the Isle of Man, both of which were close to the heart of Robin Gibb and his family – Rebecca House and Wish Upon A Dream.

A memorial service will take place later this year. Full details will be announced in due course.

Gibb’s coffin will leave Priests End at 1.30pm and travel down the High Street to the town hall before returning to St Mary’s Church. His music will form part of the service.
