Post Office loses urn

A mother in Sicily is furious the Post Office has lost a package containing her son’s ashes.

Her son died in Switzerland in October last year. The family decided to have the remains cremated in this country and bury the ashes back on the Italian island. 

But the ashes never made it home.

The Post Office’s own tracking ends in Urdorf in canton Zurich, after that, the location of package is a mystery.

The search has been ended and the family has been offered CHF 563 as compensation. 

But the mother says she’s not interested in money – she says she just wants to give her son a decent burial.
