The saddest photo I ever took

Leafing through an old photo album last night, I found this old picture.

I was walking through Plymouth Road cemetary, Redditch on a summer evening in 1991 and saw this tiny hand-assembled wooden cross, roughly nailed together, with “RIP Micheal 9 Months” written on it in permanent marker.

Who was he? How did he die? And what were the circumstances of his meagre memorial?
