An urn containing the ashes of a stillborn child was stolen during a burglary at a house in Birmingham. 

West Midlands Police has appealed for help from the public after the urn was taken during the break-in on Friday in Clopton Road, Garretts Green.

In a Facebook post, the force said: “The urn contains the ashes of the homeowner’s first child, who was stillborn almost 10 years ago, so we are desperate to get it back for her.

“She is understandably very distressed.”

Police added that some cash and a Nintendo Switch games console was also taken but “the urn has very little monetary value so will be of no use to the thieves”.

Officers added: “They may have already discarded it somewhere, so we are hoping that someone may come across it and contact us.”

Police said if anyone has any information, they should get in touch via Live Chat on their website quoting crime reference 20/193726/22 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
