A funeral for the nineteen-year-old Fine Art student who was found dead in Russia Dock Woodland nearly three weeks after he went missing from the Canada Water home he shared with his mother will be held later in August.
His bereft mother, Grace Carlos, told the News the service will be held at 2.30pm on Wednesday, August 21, at Honor Oak Crematorium.
Anyone joining the service is asked not to wear bright colours, and instead dress in black or white.
She asked the News to share the details with readers, many of whom had led a search for her son, including helping distribute hundreds of posters across London, and those who had donated to an online fundraiser set up by residents to help cover the costs of the funeral, arranged by Albin’s.
“To know that my son was a good person, that he touched so many people’s lives, and was so kind, it is the only thing I have that can help me heal,” she said.
“I have been so touched by everyone’s kindness and generosity.”
It is hoped an exhibition of Aldrin’s work will be displayed at City and Guilds College, later in the year.
