Dead woman at mor­tu­ary for 4 months

Irish Sunday Mirror - - STYLE ON SUNDAY -

A WOMAN’S body is still in a hospi­tal mor­tu­ary four months af­ter she died be­cause of a dis­pute over her fu­neral.

Former aux­il­iary nurse Joan Rams­dale, 95, should have been cre­mated or buried in Oc­to­ber when she died of nat­u­ral causes.

But her son John, her sole carer, said his “life fell apart” af­ter she died and he failed to an­swer calls.

Mr Rams­dale, of Lither­land, Mersey­side, then tried to stop the coun­cil hav­ing his mum buried be­cause he did not agree with the choice of un­der­tak­ers. Sefton Coun­cil said it hopes to sort out the fu­neral af­ter an­other rel­a­tive got in touch.
