Halstead: Thieves steal urns from graves
3:00pm Saturday 24th November 2012 in News
Thieves stole urns from family graves.
Siblings Geoffrey Nichols and Wendy Argent discovered the heavy pots had been taken from the graves in Halstead Cemetery last Sunday.
A marble urn had stood on the grave of their great-grandparents George and Harriet Catchpole and a granite one had been placed on the grave of their parents Edward and Joyce Nichols, grandmother Nora Davis and great-aunt Lucy Catchpole.
Mrs Argent, of Abels Road, Halstead, said an ornament also appeared to have been removed from another grave nearby.
