Mother Forced To Remove Deceased 4-Year-Old’s Headstone Because Of Just One Complaint
Page 2 of 3
Three days after the headstone was erected, it was taken down by council chiefs in Worcestershire. One family had complained to the Malvern Town Council. They claimed the headstone was not “in keeping” with the cemetery.
The headstone was taken down without Corbett-Weeks consent or knowledge, and she is demanding that it be put back. She and her family just want a place to grieve.
The council stated that if the application for the stone had been submitted within the usual time, they would not have allowed the stonemason to place it in the first place. Max was buried in the adult area of the cemetery so he could be close to family. A star in the children’s area would have been allowed.
