POLICE are hunting for thieves who stole two urns from Enfield Crematorium.
A devastated man from Essex discovered the ashes of his grandparents had been taken from the crematorium, in Great Cambridge Road.
The ashes, which had been there for several years, were in bronze and stoneware urns, and would have very little sell-on value, Enfield Police said, but are of “extreme sentimental value”.
Detective Constable Gwyn Lumley, who is investigating, urged anyone with information to come forward.
The thefts are thought to have happened between October 19 and October 28, and after asking whether they had been moved, the family reported the thefts to police last week.
The crematorium is managed by Haringey Council and is the final resting place of many people from across Enfield, Haringey and outside London.
