Most officers from the sheriff's office who are not working Monday on normal patrol, jail and other duties are expected to attend.
Cummings told York Police Chief Andy Robinson over the weekend that he wanted to attend the funeral for Doty, Robinson said.
Robinson said late Sunday night Cummings will attend along with others from his department.
The suspect identified by police in the shootings, Christian Thomas McCall, 47, of York, remains hospitalized and has not yet been charged.
Doty, 37, who died Wednesday night, was a deputy since 2006.
Hundreds of police from around the Carolinas and the country are expected to attend the funeral at Calvary Church in Charlotte and burial at Forest Hills Cemetery in Rock Hill.
