Cemetaries....where do all the bodies go?
I don't understand cemetaries. If there's a cemetary in a big city, eventually that cemetary runs out of room, doesn't it? I mean, how do they bury people after they've maxed out on the square footage? Is it just me and am I retarded? You can't place another body in the same place cuz wouldn't the family of the previous occupant know that it had been done.

I am seriously baffled. Someone please help before I lose my mind.

kthx.

The horror of it is that they cremate the bodies, go out to an old, old grave site, dig around the parameter of the grave to make it look freshly dug out, and then, and then...

Let me get a grip on myself for a moment.

And then they just replace the grave stone with new information of the deceased, charge anywhere from $3000.00 to $15,000.00 and then call it a day!

No. That doesn't make sense. Wouldn't there be angry relatives who remember where Grampa is buried?

And why are there no NEW cemetaries?? You'd think with all the new housing developments they'd plan for cemetaries.

Someone here must know about cemetaries. anybody? Or am I going to have to call City Hall??

I suppose in the old times having your bodied buried in the dirt was the only way to really dispose of it (and give the plants and worms some good food). but these days I don't see why people continue to bury their bodies. just cremate the thing, honestly. there's no connection between putting your body in the dirt and the afterlife.

I can hear god now, "sorry, you cremated your body. you're not allowed up here."

Re: Cemetaries....where do all the bodies go?
Are you going to presume that cemeteries do not know which graves are visited more often than others?

What do you think cemeteries do when the ground is frozen through and through?

What do you think they do when they are hit with 60 dead people, from some sort of cataclysmic event?

No. That doesn't make sense. Wouldn't there be angry relatives who remember where Grampa is buried?

Re: Cemetaries....where do all the bodies go?
There are several things to consider.

Graveyards have grown, many people are opting out of burial for cremation, and too many older graves (100+ years) with no attending family are dug up, the body exhumed and cremated or ground up (depending on the state of the remains) and re buried in what is essentially a "mass grave".

San Francisco abandoned in city burials, so they converted the town of Colma into a city of the dead. Other places have done similar things. Graveyards grow with time, once full new grave yards are established.

"Memorial Parks" are a new idea, they are freshly dug relatively speaking, they are a modern approach to mass burial of many, basically when Suburbia living started, Massive Memorial Parks were born.

Distance between grave plots were made shorter, large tomb stones were replaced with modest markers. And now days above ground buildings basically designed with book shelves can hold 10 to 20 times more bodies on the same amount of area.

About 29 per cent of deaths in London are followed by burial. Cremation deals with the rest, at 12 borough councils, five joint boards, and eight private crematoria. That statistic is pretty much global in the Western World where cremation has taken up the slack and has become the number one death plan for many.

And yes they do bury people on top of older corpses. In many areas a single plot is used to bury 2 people, say a couple who want to be close in death as they were in life.

There are other options out there for the dead.

Most likely cremation will become the only legal way to dispose of a human body in future. In some areas around the world it is the only way to dispose of the dead.

Here, they bury above and below ground and old family crypts are widely used. There may be room to slide two or three coffins on top of each other. When a fourth family member dies, they remove the bottom of the lowest coffin and dump the remains, they then pull out the empty coffin. Voila...room for the newest coffin and family member slides in nicely to the top of the crypt.

Morbid thought, huh?

I'll speak slowly because I know you are having trouble.
Once the old cemetary is full............a new one is built or started somewhere else. Plots of land are reserved already for the expansion. Now, go lay down.

Cemeteries (not cemetaries) are built on the outskirts of town. If there is a problem with encroachment, they will move the 'occupants' to another location. It has been done many times.
