A Blantyre family have been left shocked and hurt by a callous theft from the graveside of their recently departed father.
The family, who at their request, remain anonymous here sadly buried a family member on Wednesday, carefully placing a beautiful 5ft spray of flowers at the grave. However, when they drove back to Priestfield Cemetery yesterday, just one day after the funeral, they found that somebody had stolen it.
The lovely display of white and yellow flowers [pictured] didn’t last more than 24 hours before being removed. They wish to put the picture up here and ask if others have experienced thefts from gravesides.
An offer was made by us to replace the flowers. Our thoughts are with this family for what they’ve gone through this week.
