Ian Brady Cremation
Margaret Carney, Sefton Council’s Chief Executive, said: “The High Court ordered us to cremate the remains of Ian Brady because he died within the Sefton borough boundary.
“In complying with this Order from the High Court, the cremation took place at Southport Crematorium outside normal operating hours and no other services at the crematorium were affected.
“The coffin did not enter any public area and was cremated in a separate standby cremator which was professionally cleaned afterwards.
“Following cremation, the ashes were immediately returned to the administrator of the estate and not disposed of anywhere in the borough.”
