A mum found dead at a cemetery two weeks after being reported missing from home has been laid to rest. Hundreds of mourners gathered at a Lancashire church on Friday for the funeral service of 47-year-old teaching assistant Lindsay Birbeck. The mum-of-two went missing from her home in Huncoat, Accrington, in August. A murder investigation was launched after her body was discovered at Accrington Cemetery two weeks later. During the service, at St Margaret’s Church in Hapton, tributes from Lindsay’s brother Darrell, son Steven, daughter Sarah and husband Tim were read out by the priest, reports Lancs Live.

We feel shocked and saddened that something like this could happen in our community. “Many of us will be feeling angry that something so awful could happen to Lindsay.” A post-mortem examination showed Lindsay died as a result of compression of the neck. A 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with Lindsay’s murder.
