The body of Shropshire millionaire Christopher Foster will be buried next to the wife and teenage daughter it is believed he murdered.
The funeral for the 50-year-old businessman will take place on Friday, just hours after the service for his wife Jill and their 15-year-old daughter Kirstie.
Mrs Foster and Kirstie will share a grave while Mr Foster – who killed them both before taking his own life at their mansion in Maesbrook, Shropshire – will be buried in a separate plot next to them.
The process of arranging the funerals is understood to have sparked a feud between Mr Foster’s family and relatives of his wife.
Mrs Foster’s sister, Anne Giddings, told The People newspaper that she wanted Mr Foster to be buried “as far away as possible” from her sister and niece.
She said: “I’m gutted to think that beast will be buried in the same cemetery as my sister and her beautiful daughter.
“He will be lying right next to them, just a few feet away.”
Gavin Drake, director of communications for the Diocese of Lichfield, said: “The funeral arrangements have been made in consultation with the families and next of kin.
“With the unusual circumstances surrounding the tragic deaths of the Foster family, it is impossible to find a solution which will fully satisfy everybody.
“But we hope the funerals will provide a dignified opportunity for the families and friends to pay their final respects.”
The funeral for Mrs Foster and Kirstie will take place at 11am on Friday at St John’s Church in Maesbrook.
Mr Foster’s will be held at the same church at 2.30pm.
The services will be conducted by senior retired clergyman the Venerable Tony Sadler, formerly the Archdeacon of Walsall.
Police believe Mr Foster committed suicide after killing Kirstie and his wife Jill and setting fire to their £1.2 million home and its outbuildings in the early hours of August 26.
CCTV footage recovered from Osbaston House showed a man police strongly believed to be Mr Foster firing a rifle at a horsebox as his property burned.
