"Funeral Held For Remaining Murder Victims"

Marek Garstka, who was 56, his 30-year-old daughter Izabela Rzeszowska and her children, five-year-old Kinga and two-year-old Kacper, died at Victoria Crescent in St Helier from stab wounds.

They were cremated in private services on Thursday before their ashes were taken to St Thomas' Church.

The ashes will be repatriated to Poland.
Catholic Dean of Jersey, Monsignor Nicholas France, and Father Jan Swiatek, Jersey's Polish Catholic Mission Priest, took the service.

Monsignor France said there was a good turnout. He said: "I think this is an opportunity always to remember, we can learn from what has gone before us.
"Above all, work to sustain the sense of solidarity that has been a special mark of these past few weeks."

In an emotional reading by Mr Garstka’s brother, Wieslaw Garstka, who was visiting from Poland with his wife, he said that he hoped his brother was now walking through the meadows in heaven with his beloved daughter and grandchildren.

The other two victims, Marta de La Haye and her daughter Julia, were remembered at a special Mass on Saturday.

Damian Rzeszowski, 30, has been charged with six murders and is being held in a secure facility in the UK.
