BBC News – Reuse of graves ‘needed to prevent crisis’

Tim Morris thinks pressure is mounting for a new law, covering England and Wales.

He says: “It’s really frustrating. Reuse is common in lots of other countries, and was common practice in the UK until the 1850s. Reuse is the simple answer to everything”.

Sorry, surely the “simple” answer is compulsory cremation unless a really good reason for a burial can be given.

The Cremation Society of Great Britain had a slogan they used: “Save the land for the living”. I think they’re right.
