The mum-of-one lost a long battle to cancer last month after raising more than £25,000 following an appeal in the Recorder which enabled her to buy the miracle drug, Avastin, which gave her more precious time with her family.

Carly, of Broseley Gardens in Harold Hill, was 31 years old and was a teacher at Rise Park Infant School.

The service was held at St Andrew’s Church in High Street, Hornchurch, the same place where she married her husband, David, four and a half years ago.

Her aunt, Michelle Pugh, said: “It was very emotional and moving.

“The vicar who took the service was a friend and his words were very comforting and true as had spoken to Carly in depth.

“With most funerals the words spoken are only what they have been told by family but this was different and sincere.”

The church was completely filled with Carly’s friends and family while others, from as far away as Australia, left hundreds of messages on her Facebook page.

The flowers have been left at Eastbrookend Cemetery, where she was buried, in The Chase, Dagenham, and a watering can left nearby so visitors can water them.
