London: Bee Gees star Robin Gibb`s funeral will take place next week with only family and close firends attending. The 62-year-old legendary singer lost his battle against liver cancer on May 20.

Though the location of the funeral has not been disclosed yet but it is expected to be close to the home he shared with his wife, Dwina, in Thame, England, reported a website.

Gibb`s family members have requested that the guests should not get flowers for the late singer instead asked for donations to two children`s charities, which were close to the heart of Gibb.

The musician`s family is reportedly planning a memorial for later this year, which will take place at St Paul`s Cathedral in London.
