Friends and family pay online tribute to Lichfield schoolgirl

Friends and family have paid tribute to a Lichfield schoolgirl who has died.

Fourteen-year-old Minnie Elkington was found dead at her home on Monday morning (March 29).

No reason for her death has yet been given, but friends and relatives have already signed up to a Facebook group to share their memories of the Nether Stowe High School pupil.

One wrote:

“We all loved you so much, you’ve left a huge great hole in our lives, we’re all just devastated. Life will never be the same again. Never even got the chance too say goodbye and tell you how much I loved you.”

Another added:

“Minnie, so sad and shocked, you were a sweet lovely girl. Rest in peace sweetheart.”

    These young people have set up a Facebook group that is Private i.e. you have to join to be able to see the messages left. I am therefore very concerned that the author of this piece seems tp have joined this private Facebook group for the purpose of reading their private messages of remembrance to post them in a public forum

    Can these young people not be allowed to grieve in peace?

    The page is public and you don’t need to join it to view the messages. I’ve just looked

    There are a couple of groups that I’ve seen actually; one is private, one isn’t so it depends which they are quoting.

    I knew minnie very very well and I’m part of most of these groups. There is a private one and 2 public that I know of. I still wish that they asked for our permission to use them
