Over a thousand babies' ashes have been withheld from parents and families and buried without notification or permission. The effect this has had on the families concerned is immeasurable. We need a full and public investigation into how this happened, how it continued for so long and how we can be sure that it will never happen again. The handling of these babies' ashes has added insult to the already unimaginable injury of losing a child. Please sign so these families can get some answers.

To:
Councillor Lesley Hinds., Edinburgh City Council
The Right Hon Alex Salmond MSP, Scottish Parliament.
Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Scottish Parliament.
Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Scottish Parliament.
Hold a public inquiry into the handling of babies' ashes at Mortonhall Crematorium.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I am supporting a fellow Angel Mum, and all who have been affected by this. Things like this should not happen! Is it not enough pain these parents have to deal with that have already lost a child without adding to their broken hearts?!
