Sydney, Feb 9 : Heath Ledger's family will be holding a private funeral for the late actor on Feb 9, with only 10 family members attending the service.
Ledger's father Kim Ledger revealed that the funeral, to be held at Penrhos College in Como, south of Perth, would be attended by just ten guests from immediate family.
"It's a pretty sad time and we are finding it difficult to cope by ourselves,'' News.com.au was quoted Kim, as saying. "The funeral will be very, very private and there will only be 10 people there, immediate family and nobody else,'' he added.
While addressing the media, Kim said that they were allowed to take photos of people arriving for the funeral at the exclusive girls' school but also asked them to respect the family's privacy.
However, the time of the funeral was not revealed.
The 'Brokeback Mountain' star was found lifeless at his Manhattan apartment on January 22 following an accidental overdose of prescription medications.
