Her funeral is due to take place at the First Presbyterian Non-Subscribing Church in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, this week (begs06Oct08).
It is currently unknown whether the 18-year-old, who is starring in the Broadway production of Equus, will fly back from New York to attend the memorial service.
A representative for Radcliffe was unavailable to comment as WENN went to press.
