Petition To Stop The Removal of Items from Infants Graves in East Herringthorpe Crematorium On 22nd June 2009 officials from East Herringthorpe Crematorium, Rotherham will be removing items placed on the graves of infants, as they feel they are "untidy", families have been given 1 weeks notice to remove any items on their graves and have been informed that any items remaining after this date will be removed by crematorium officials. We the undersigned believe that items placed on infant graves at East Herringthorpe Crematorium should be allowed to stay and not be removed by officials. We believe that the families of the children laid to rest in these graves should be allowed to place teddies and other small toys and cards on the graves of their children if they so wish. As these graves are childrens graves, toys are often placed instead of flowers, flowers are allowed on adult graves so we see no reason why toys and trinkets should be removed if the families of children feel they are more appropriate than floral tributes. We believe that they do not look untidy. We believe there is no harm in allowing the items to remain as long as they are not causing obstructions to footpaths.
