Organised by the Elm Park British Legion and Ian’s parents Simon and Helen, a parade will begin outside the legion’s base in Maylands Avenue at 11.15am, before proceeding to St Nicholas Church, in Woodcote Avenue, for the service.

The Haverettes All Gils Marching Band and representatives from the Guides and Scouts will be taking part in the parade.

Also attending will be the Deputy Lieutenant of Havering, Colonel Mark Bryant, representatives from Ian’s regiment and representatives from Sanders School and RJ Mitchell Primary School.

Ian, 42, was killed in action in Helmand province last November. The warrant officer class 2, who served with the 3rd Battalion The Mercian Regiment, grew up in Elm Park and went to Sanders School (formerly Sanders Draper) and Havering College - then known as Havering Tech.

He left behind two sons, William and James, and wife Emma.
