Memorial gifts gone from man’s grave


A widow is warning other mourners to be on their guard after items have gone missing from her husband’s grave.

Marilyn Buck visits the grave of husband John in Stratton Way Cemetery in Biggleswade at least once a week.

She said: “Someone has taken four things; two tiny ornaments, one with dad on and one with grandad. There was a little bottle with a ship in and also a meerkat ornament.

“I’ve heard of other people saying different things were taken.”

Several items were purchased by her grandchildren, who used their allowance of pocket money to remember their grandfather.

Marilyn, who lives in Back Street, added: “I don’t know how people could take things off a dead man’s grave.”
