SAIF in the news

May 24, 2017   //   No Comments

SAIF’s PR representative Paul Allcock commented in The Guardian on 18th May on the subject of where Ian Brady would be buried.  After Brady’s lawyer had confirmed that his ashes will not be scattered on Saddleworth Moor, the The Guardian ran an article on the problem of some funeral directors refusing to bury murderers and other notorious people for fear of the harm it may cause their business.

Paul commented, “My feeling would be that everybody deserves a decent burial, just because they are human,” he said. “Regardless of what our personal views are of any individual … In our role, really, you shouldn’t treat anybody any different to anybody else. Our whole ethos is that we care for the deceased and the bereaved and we treat anybody, be they lord and lady or someone off the street corner who has nobody, in the same manner.”
