We'd love to take a Portkey to this graveyard!

Officials in Edinburgh have been ordering the removal of letters from Harry Potter fans on one particular grave! And no, the epitaph doesn't read, "Here Lies Dobby A Free Elf."

Thomas Riddell may have been a general who died back in 1806, but centuries later he is now the cause of some news, seeing how his name is almost identical to the actual identity of Voldemort, Tom Riddle.

His gravesite in Greyfriers Kirkyard has been getting a lot of notes from the Harry Potter fanbase, as if this general had died in the Battle of Hogwarts instead!

Well, at least they haven't been leaving the Dark Mark! Nothing ruins a graveyard quite like Morsmordre!

An Edinburgh City Council spokesperson had this to say:

"In order to preserve the appearance of this historic graveyard and out of respect to the family, items left by this headstone are regularly removed."

Get this, all you Death Eaters out there! It's also been reported that this grave inspired JK Rowling!

We do hope everyone knows that desecrating a grave is pretty much an Unforgivable Curse in our opinion.

    The "grave" as such did not inspire her…..She is from Edinburgh, and wrote the books in a cafe overlooking that Graveyard and a private school……its no secret and nothing new.
