A spokeswoman said it “would be a traumatic day for all involved” and the family required privacy to grieve the loss of their loved ones.

“They do not need to have added stress or pressure from any organisation or individual who chooses not to honour their request,” she said.

A fundraising account set up at Port Lincoln Community Bank had raised $63,000 to support Melissa Little, mother of Koda and Hunter and wife of Damien, as of 9am on Monday.
