Grieving family told no Saturday funeral because they are not Muslim
by Paul Stokes
A grieving family have been prevented from holding a funeral service for a close relative at the weekend because they are not Muslim.Harold Lemaire, a retired steel erector, died in a nursing home last week at the age of 75 after suffering a stroke.
His stepdaughter Jean Maltby wanted to hold the funeral service this Saturday to allow members of the family who live outside the area to attend.
But when a funeral director called Sheffield's City Road Cemetery to make the arrangements he was informed it was not allowed because the family were not Muslim.
