What on earth is going on, we ask ourselves, at Henry Ison and Sons, Coventry?
Laurel Funerals has suspended four members of staff, including two funeral directors and a hearse driver.
We have fearlessly hunted down two of the accused and… well, we wonder, we really do. They have no objection to being highlighted here.
In a state of some bewilderment, we asked for a statement from Laurel ceo Deborah Kemp. She tells us, quite properly:
To protect the privacy of our employees, it is Laurel’s company policy never to talk about individual staff members or discuss internal personnel-related processes. I trust you understand and respect our stance in such matters.
Of course we do.
And we shall remain alert to future developments.
