Baby A and Baby B were found dead in a crypt box at the General Cemetery in Shrewsbury.

The bodies were found by two men employed there. They found a sixpence on the lid of the box which was supposed to contain flowers to be placed on some grave with the sixpence given as a gratuity. But when they opened the lid they found the dead babies.
