Cemetery officials have mementos of baby tidied up

Post by GD on Wed 11 May 2011, 7:55 pm

A MOTHER whose baby died shortly after birth was devastated when she found mementos had been removed from his grave by cemetery authorities.

Lisa James, 21, was told that a photo, some small stones and other keepsakes on son Theo’s grave at Le Foulon Cemetery made it ‘cluttered and tatty’.

Her mum, Beverley James, said her daughter fell to her knees and cried when she saw items had been removed last Wednesday, exactly 13 weeks after her baby’s premature death.

‘I knew it had not been pinched because it had all been tidied up,’ said Miss James. ‘The caretaker was told he had to take it off because it was cluttered, tatty and a health risk.’ (from GEP)

Seems a little harsh to me...
