Previous Action

It is my belief that a mass grave containing human remains from HMS Dasher exists in Ardrossan Cemetery.  A low level radar scan of the area by Glasgow University concluded this theory could not be ruled out.

I requested that North Ayrshire Council conduct a full search and exhumation of the area, however due to the restrictions on exhumations in the 1855 Act this was not possible.  In order that North Ayrshire Council would apply to the court for the appropriate permissions I had to change my request from a full search and exhumation to what is a ‘sensitive search’ where the turf will be removed and a search will be carried out using small trowels and should any remains be found the search will have to be halted and the earth and turf immediately reinstated.
