Thieves hit Sir Conrad’s grave

THE FINAL RESTING PLACE of cricketing legend Sir Conrad Hunte in St Andrew’s cemetery has been desecrated.

And the sisters of the great West Indian batsman are saddened and upset after thieves made off with all but three pieces of the marble headstone that marked his grave and those of their mother and father.

The headstone, complete with its image of a cricket bat, told visitors to the St Andrew graveyard that the grave was that of a Knight of St Andrew and international cricketer.

Sister Audrey Hunte-Cox said they were told of the theft last Friday by a brother who attended a funeral at the church.
