The grandfather of the four members of a Gloucestershire family found dead in a disused Shropshire quarry on Monday has written a heartfelt open letter to a newspaper.
An inquest is expected to open next week and will then be adjourned while police complete their investigations into the deaths of the family who were formally identified today as Ceri Fuller (35), his son Samuel (12) and daughters Rebecca Rose (8) and Charlotte Mae (7).
A post-mortem-examination revealed Mr Fuller who was from Milkwall, Coleford died "from multiple injuries consistent with falling from a height."
The post-mortem examinations on the children revealed they each died from stab wounds.
The grandfather Ron Tocknell, who is the father of the children's mother Ruth has written an open letter to a newspaper revealing that he does not blame his son-in-law for the tragedy.
In the letter printed in The Citizen newspaper the grandfather wrote about Ceri Fuller's love for his children and that this was "not an act of malice or spite".
The father and his three children went missing from their home last week before their bodies were discovered on Pontesbury Hill near Shrewsbury on Monday.
West Mercia Police described the deaths as a "tragic family situation".
Mr Tocknell went on to say that he had read about tragedies like this happening to other families but never thought it would happen to his as well as thanking the public for their support.
Mr Tocknell described how he and his family are coping with the loss adding that no grandparent should have to bury their grandchildren and no parent should have to bury their child:
