Do you recognise these statues?

Two religious statues that were found in a garage in Farnborough.

They were found in a garage in the Barnes Close area of Farnborough.

The owner of the garage noticed there had been a break in at his garage in March this year.

Inside his garage, he found two religious statues, both standing around 20 inches tall, that did not belong to him.

Both statues are thought to be grave furnishings.

It is thought the break in could have taken place as far back as the start of November last year.

Since the incident was reported to us, we have been in touch with local churches and cemeteries, but we have been unable to find where these statues belong. We are now appealing to the public for their help. Do you recognise these statues, or know where they may have been sited originally? Is so, please get in touch.
