Funeral For 'Butterfly' Boys In Poole

The funeral has been held in Branksome for two young brothers who both suffered from a rare condition.

3-year-old Harry Churchill and 21-month-old Cody were known as butterfly children - they suffered from epidermolysis bullosa (EB) which meant their skin would blister if it was touched.

They died within days of each other earlier this month.

A minute's applause was held at AFC Bournemouth's football match for the boys on Saturday.

The family thanked people for "every single message of love at this sad time" in a post on Facebook.

The funeral service was at St Aldhelm's Church in Poole at 10.30 on Wednesday 27 March. Around 200 mourners were there to pay tribute to the boys. Their coffins were decorated with their favourite characters and Star Wars stormtroopers stood guard outside the church.
