I was shocked to learn about a mindless vandalism attack on 17 gravestones at Kingsley Cemetery.
It’s suspected the rampage took place overnight on Thursday, October 21. Heavy stone crosses had been overturned and broken.
Flowers were strewn around after the pots in which they had been placed were smashed up. One wooden cross was turned upside down.
The nature and scale of this mindless vandalism is shocking and upsetting, especially for those whose loved ones are buried there.
You can’t get your head around why an individual or group would set out to desecrate graves. From my knowledge of Kingsley, I would imagine something like this is highly unusual.
I’d urge anyone with information about this incident to contact Cheshire Police.
Anyone with information is asked to contact them on 101 or through their website, quoting incident number IML 1114184.
