Now-closed Meredith motorcycle museum to ask judge to close crematorium


MEREDITH — The owners of a now-closed motorcycle museum will speak with a judge to try to either shut down a neighboring crematorium or to ban its use between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Douglass and Leslyee Fredrick, of New Hampton, operated the American Police Motorcycle Museum up until last month. The Fredricks have filed a counterclaim against Peter and Kelley Mayhew who own a crematorium as part of their funeral home business, the Laconia Citizen reported.

The Mayhews initially filed suit against the Fredericks saying the Fredericks were defaming Mayhew Funeral Home Inc. by publicly stating that human ash from the crematorium's chimney was fouling their property.

The Fredricks told the Citizen that they had filed a counterclaim charging that the crematorium is a nuisance and that its continued operation, places them under threat of “irreparable personal, professional and financial harm.”
