Heard the one about the mother-in-law?

Butterfly Funeral Services in Medway – a district in the county of Kent, England – had an unusual break-in, more than a year ago.

An unnamed man managed to get into the premises and retrieved the corpse of his mother-in-law. The incident has only become known because several other families have since been unable to get the ashes of their relatives.

It appears that Butterfly has lost its wings.

Medway Council’s head of regulatory services, James Brown, said: “We have been contacted by a funeral director who will be returning a number of urns to Medway Crematorium.”
