Funeral Held for Stolen Remains
When the bodies were found, two scientists took some body parts for research without telling the family.
Sir Sidney Smith and Harvey Littlejohn removed limbs and organs before sealing up the remains in coffins for burial.
Parts of the boys' bodies were held by Edinburgh University until Wednesday's service.
The boys were murdered in 1911 but it was not until their bodies were found 18 months later in 1913 that some of the body parts were taken by the scientists during the post-mortem examinations.
