Daniel’s funeral was held at Jubilee Church in Ilford on Friday morning.

Adults and teenagers attended the service and a number brought bunches of flowers.

After the service, Daniel’s coffin was placed in the funeral hearse and was surrounded by bunches of flowers.

Floral tributes were also placed on top of the coffin, one with his picture in the middle.

Dozens of emotional mourners watched from outside the church as the hearse drove away.

A GoFundMe page set up in Daniel’s honour on behalf of Grace Anjorin has so far received more than £150,000.

A message from “Mr and Mrs Anjorin and family” posted on the page thanked the community for its emotional and financial support.

“In the wake of our son Daniel’s tragic death we wish to thank you for your support which has been a source of comfort and strength to our family,” they said.

“We deeply appreciate your generous donation.

“Due to the trauma of Daniel’s death particularly on his siblings we have decided to use the donation provided towards establishing a new family home.

“This home will not only provide a place of solace and gathering for our family but will also stand as a lasting tribute to Daniel’s legacy.”

In a statement issued by the Metropolitan Police, the family previously said: “We as a family are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Daniel.

“It is difficult for us at this time to process what has happened to him and that he will never come home. Daniel had left the house for school and then he was gone.

“Our children have lost their loving and precious brother and we have lost the most loved and amazing son.”

Marcus Arduini Monzo, 36, a dual Spanish-Brazilian national living in Newham, east London, has been charged with Daniel’s murder, two counts of attempted murder and two counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

He was also charged with aggravated burglary and possession of a bladed article.
