ELIZABETH Way and Company Funeral Directors has reassured families that loved ones were not disturbed during an overnight break-in at their Mossley premises.
Charity boxes were stolen and a recently finished war memorial display, decorated by Millbrook Primary and Nursery School, was smashed during the incident.
The break-in is believed to have occurred at the branch on Stamford Street between lock-up at 6pm on Thursday, November 7 and the arrival of staff at 8am on Friday, November 8.
Taking to Facebook soon after the discovery, staff reassured residents their loved ones are securely kept and were not disturbed but charity boxes for Macmillan and Ruben’s Retreat were stolen.
A staff member commented: “It’s absolutely disgusting. It’s not just a funeral home, it’s people’s loved ones’ resting place.
“I’d just like to stress that no one’s loved ones were harmed. We’ve contacted the families so they are informed.”
Staff are now working closely with police to find those responsible. Elizabeth Way’s 24-hour call line is available for anyone with information to come forward: 01457 779147.
