Burial Plot Shortage in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland?
New evidence suggests that the United Kingdom may soon face a nasty problem: lack of space to bury dead bodies in. As reported by The Cemetery Research Group at The University of York, it appears that all across the UK, churchyards and cemeteries may have no place to put the recently departed. The Guardian notes that there are alternatives to traditional burial. These options include cremation, as well as the new biodegradable internment options, promession and resomation.
