Late actor HEATH LEDGER will be buried next to his grandparents following a private funeral in his hometown of Perth, Western Australia.
The Brokeback Mountain star’s parents Kim and Sally Ledger have opted out of a public funeral, preferring to invite only close family and friends to the Karakatta Cemetery in Perth.
The Ledger family allegedly turned down an offer from his former school Guildford Grammar to use their chapel for the funeral, according to The Daily Sydney Telegraph.
However, the Ledgers have agreed to use the chapel if they choose to hold an Australian memorial service. They attended a private ceremony for the star in Hollywood on Sunday (03Feb08).
It is not known if Ledger’s former fiancee, Michelle Williams, will fly to Perth for the funeral.
Ledger was found dead in his New York apartment last month (22Jan08) at the age of 28.
