Hundreds attend thanksgiving service for Toby, Samantha and Genevieve Day

PEOPLE packed into All Saints Church in Oakham this afternoon (Thursday) for a thanksgiving service.

The public service was held to celebrate the lives of Toby and Samantha Day and their six-year-old daughter Genevieve, known as Genny.

A private funeral was held in Market Overton last month.

They died in an incident at their home in Melton in December and it is believed Mr Day was responsible for their deaths.

Among those in the church were Mr and Mrs Day’s teenage children Kimberley and Adam.

During the service, hymns were sang and tributes were given by family, friends and colleagues.
