Always providing professional service
The Scottish President of SAIF has spoken publicly regarding the funeral of the Moors Murderer Ian Brady. SAIF’s Mark Porteous appeared in an article in The Times newspaper to stress that everyone must be entitled to a dignified end.
Brady, who died aged 79 in May, had previously expressed his desire to be cremated and have his ashes scattered in Glasgow. However, the newspaper revealed that Glasgow City Council has said that it ‘will do everything in its power to prevent his wishes being fulfilled.’
In The Times article Mark said: “The history of the individual in question dictates that there will never be a normal, traditional funeral.
“However, we care for the deceased in a professional and respectful manner, regardless of what our personal views may be.”
According to the national newspaper, a spokesman for Sefton Coroner’s Office in Merseyside confirmed that Brady’s remains had been released and were now in the care of his solicitor.
Few murders have shaken the public as much as Ian Brady’s crimes. Between 1963 and 1965, Brady and his accomplice, Myra Hindley, tortured, sexually abused and killed five youngsters before burying their bodies on the moors outside Manchester.Tags: Ian Brady, Mark Porteous, Myra Hindley, President, SAIF, Scotland, Scottish
