One complaint and a mother had to remove her 4-year-old son’s headstone. Jo Corbett-weeks, 42, saved $4,580 to have a headstone that featured a teddy bear holding a star with an inscription to her son made.
Max Corbett-Gardener died from complications from epilepsy died when he was four years old. The headstone was placed on Max’s grave, in Great Malvern Cemetery, to commemorate what would have been his seventh birthday.
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.
