A HORSEDRAWN carriage will carry the body of Michelle Suttle to her funeral next Tuesday.

The procession carrying the 23-year-old, known as Shelley to friends, will leave from Gargrave Close, Rastrick, at 11am.

There will be a service at Fixby Crematorium at 11.30am.

Former Rastrick High School student Michelle was stabbed to death in her home in Oakes, Huddersfield, earlier this month.

Her colleagues at Elm Royd Nursing Home, Brighouse, where she worked for the past year said: “We are all shocked and saddened by her tragic death, she was an asset to our work place and was one of the very best carers, always smiling and always happy.

“She will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure of her company.”

A collection will be held at the service for the Domestic Violence Intervention Project. Friends are then invited to The George, Commercial Street, Brighouse.
