Moors Murderer Ian Brady’s body must be disposed of with “no music and no ceremony”, a judge at the High Court in London has ruled.

The order was made in London on Friday by the Chancellor of the High Court Sir Geoffrey Vos.

Brady, who used the name Ian Stewart-Brady, died aged 79 on 15 May this year.

Sir Geoffrey’s ruling follows applications made in relation to the disposal by Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council and Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council.

One of the defendants in the case is solicitor Robin Makin, Brady’s executor.

Reporting restriction orders currently prohibit publication of who has possession of the remains, where they are stored and any information about the intended arrangements for disposal.

Brady and Myra Hindley, who died in prison in 2002, tortured and murdered five children in the 1960s. Four of the victims were buried on Saddleworth Moor in the south Pennines.

Pauline Reade, 16, disappeared on her way to a disco on July 12, 1963 and John Kilbride, 12, was snatched in November the same year.

Keith Bennett was taken after he left home to visit his grandmother; Lesley Ann Downey, 10, was lured away from a funfair on Boxing Day, 1964; and Edward Evans, 17, was killed in October 1965.

Keith’s body has never been found, despite exhaustive searches of the barren landscape by the police, army and even using a US spy satellite.

Brady was jailed for three murders in 1966. He and Hindley later confessed to another two murders.
