    Default Memorial Torn Down

    A stonemason has 'RIP-ossessed' a headstone worth nearly £10,000 after the bill remained unpaid for more than three years.
    Self-employed stonemason Andy Manuell, 54, went to the extreme lengths of tearing down the memorial when he was left out of pocket after chasing the family for payment for the ‘star memorial’ in Durrington Cemetery, West Sussex.
    Last month he partially dismantled the elaborate headstone for Francesco and Immacolata Isolda to try and ‘cause a reaction’ to motivate the family to pay up.

    It makez you wonder if they ever intended to pay.

    I would have done the same but quicker.

    Good advance planning, Earl.

    Police and bailiffs were there! and the place was not Durrington it was Brighton/ Hove cemetary on the "Old Shoreham road"! aparently the woman did the same with a builder who she had build an extension to her house! he went round and removed it brick by brick! and the classic was the house was owned by the bloudy council!
