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.
