More right for bereaved parents/families of murder victims

More right for bereaved parents/families of murder victims

To give parents/families more access to see the body of bereaved children before to bury them. This is very traumatic time for mums and dad/siblings and relatives. Parents will miss their child for rest of their live so they can view the body to make sure that is the one that have been buried.

Why is this important?

In 2016 I lost my beloved son through knife crime, I told to view his body until the investigation is over. Then I was refuse to see his body.This is a very traumatic time for parents/relatives and they cannot have access to view their deceased child and this can add to emotional trauma they are experiencing and they will live with that trauma for the rest of their lives.


Reasons for signing

  • I have signed this petition because in 2016 I have had a great lost of my 17 years old son who was tragically stabbed to death. I was not able to view his body before buried him. This is a big emotionally trauma that a mother could go through.I would like you to help me through this petition so that the government could change law so that parents could view the body of theirs loves one before buried them.
