Ashley Cain has shared the details of their daughter Azaylia's funeral after she tragically died following a battle with leukaemia last month.

The 30 year old and his partner Safiyya Vorajee, 33, each took to their Instagram feeds to share several snaps of their late baby girl before explaining their plans.

While Safiyya shared a sweet picture of herself smiling with little Azaylia, who was dressed in a pink babygrow with lions emblazoned all over it, Ashley posted various photos of his daughter in a pink bathrobe and bunny-themed socks.

They both ended the series with a black and white photo of them together with the hashtag #letsgochamp. Underneath this, they wrote: "In loving memory of Azaylia Daimond Cain 10.08.2020 – 24.04.2021".

Ashley and Safiyya wrote in the caption: "Azaylia’s Day," with an angel emoji, a praying hands emoji and a lion emoji. "We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, words of sympathy & patience over the last few weeks, while we come to terms with the loss of Azaylia.

"We have been incredibly moved by the support we have received far and wide and all the beautiful gesture of kindness will live in hearts forever."

The heartbroken parents went on to explain that the immediate family will attend a private funeral service on Friday 21 May, but they will also have a procession through Nuneaton in Warwickshire for all who want to come and pay their respects.

They explained: "We have been in correspondence with Warwickshire Police, to understand how we can give people who would like to pay their respects, the chance to do so.

"Due to current restrictions the family will be attending a private service of celebration of Azaylia’s life, but prior to the Azaylia’s service we will be giving Azaylia her last journey through Nuneaton town."

The pair continued: "The route the cortege will be taking is along: Croft Road – CV10 7DP (small car park by Tesco’s if required) Into Queens Road – CV11 5LD Roanne Ring Way – (Parking in Town Centre, Abbey Street CV11 5NE) Right into Coton Road (Parking in Riversley Park CV11 5TY) And left into Avenue Road (parking at Pingles Leisure CV11 4TX)".

Ashley and Safiyya then asked those wishing to attend to stick to the government guidelines of social distancing measures amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
