Spray paint marks the spot

Staff at Mortonhall crematorium, Edinburgh, have since 1967  been telling families that no ashes can be retrieved from the cremation of babies who die at or around the time of birth. They have been secretly burying the ashes in a mass grave. We covered this here

In response to public outrage, the crematorium is now indicating where the babies’ ashes are buried. The manner in which they have done so has done nothing to slake the anger and grief of those parents who were lied to.

    Seems to me that a lot of bovver could be averted if crem staff were to be trained in the elements of ritual.

    Have just prematurely terminated a project in another area, so I have some spare capacity. Any potential collaborators out there?
