Family and friends of a woman who was murdered at her home with her six-year-old son will be able to pay their respects at a memorial service.

Lisa Clay, 40, was killed at her bungalow in Bolton-Le-Sands last month, along with her boy Joseph.

Lisa’s funeral was held on Friday, May 3, but a service has now been arranged in Boston for her family in the area and friends and former colleagues to be able to pay their respects.

Lisa grew up in Sutterton and lived locally before moving to Morecambe about nine years ago.

She worked at Jessops china shop for about 15 years, employed in Boston and later Lincoln.

A family member said: “It will allow family and friends to join together and time will be given to those who would like to say a few words.”

“Since people found out we have heard from quite a few people in Donington who went to school with her.”

The service will be held at the Centenary Methodist Church in Boston on Saturday, June 1, at 1.30pm.

The date would have been one day before Lisa’s 41st birthday.

Her parents Marlene and Joseph lived in Sutterton, moving to Kirton when Joe died about 20 years ago.

A Home Office post mortem examination revealed that Lisa and Joseph died as a result of stab wounds.

Paul Chadwick, 34, of Lowlands Road, Bolton-Le-Sands, is charged with their murder.

Mr Chadwick is said to have been Lisa’s partner and Joseph’s father.

He has appeared at Preston Crown Court for a preliminary hearing and has been remanded in custody until a trial, which is expected to take place in October.
