Mystery over ‘ashes box’ found near Castle Howard
9:16am Tuesday 25th February 2014 in News
AN ORNATE box containing what are believed to be a pet’s ashes has been found in undergrowth near the entrance to the stately home Castle Howard.
Malton Police say the wooden box has a plaque on the top bearing the name Max Jaffa.
This was the name of a famous band leader who died in 1991, but police think it relates to a pet called Max Jaffa.
PC Paul Fenwick said: “How the box got to be at the roadside is a mystery. It’s possible it has been discarded following a burglary.”
