The Glee star's funeral took place in Vancouver, Canada, following a private wake that was attended by his heartbroken girlfriend Lea Michele, 26, and his family, including his older brother Shaun. His father Joe Monteith is devastated that he was not invited.

Joe told gossip website that he was only informed about his son's cremation after it took place and is "totally devastated" that he wasn't invited to view Cory's body for the last time.

He added: "I always loved both my sons and am going to miss Cory very very much. I'm saddened at the fact that I couldn't have been there to see my son before he was cremated."
