Do not allow for Monster Brady's ashes to be scattered.

This petition had 18 supporters


We the undersigned are asking for the coroner Mr Christopher Sumner to ensure that Ian Brady's ashes will not be scattered to the wind but allow for the ashes to be buried within the grounds of Ashworth Hospital where Brady spent most of his incarcerated life.

A persons right to be free is a right we all share and this right is governed by our laws of the land. Ian Brady forfeited his right to freedom in his crimes committed with his partner Myra Hindley. Brady's refusal to disclose the whereabouts of Keith Bennetts body is a clear indication he had no remorse for his crimes nor regard to any of his victims families and as a consequence to this, we believe that his rights for his remains to be freed and scattered should be also forfeited, as it was in life.

We propose that that upon his cremation, his ashes should be brought back to the grounds of Ashworth Secure Hospital to be buried in an undisclosed, unmarked location within its walls and gardens. This way it is guaranteed that no public area of the UK is marred by his remains, that anyone who has any interest in Brady have no access to his final desination and finally this contravenes Brady's final desire for his freedom upon his death. 

You yourself, expressed concerns that you did not wish for Brady's ashes to be released near to saddleworth moor out of respect of the victims, this can only be 100% ensured if the ashes are not released to the outside elements whatsoever. 

We the undersigned, implore you as the coroner to consider our wishes and to act on our proposal
