Why not drill there? Drilling takes place under wildlife sanctuaries, Hollywood movie sets and
posh Beverly Hills neighborhoods. Anything to lesson the dependence on arab oil. Drill baby, drill!

Even without such case the owner of the plots do not maintain them thus heirs could lose ownership via adverse possession
It's common in Europe. They re-use graves. But burial procedures there are different.

Most cemeteries, I *thought*(just from reading the fine print after burying my parents) actually own the plots, family were just granted the right to bury there. So no heirs in cemeteries,*I think*.

I am familiar with European policies on grave yards. I was using heirs based on the cry to not allow drilling under cemeteries to show a legal way to defeat any claim to the earth under the coffin.
My point as well, only coming from another direction. Just don't think the family has any "rights" really. Drill baby. Only from my amateurish historian perspective, do capture photos of the gravestones.

For me I will be buried on my own land with a well rigjt next to me. I will be buried vertical not horizontal and encased in concrete with no marker. Absolutely no funeral service either not even a notice in news papers
Told my family before: cremation or simple non-embalmed burial. I'll be dead, I don't care, I don't see the point. I'd rather the money go somewhere but in the ground. Why "preserve" me? No point. I'm not one for the huge show of a funeral, either.

Agreed. My instructions are Cremation, no funeral. A day of visitation at our home where my daughter and sons can control events for my wife. If my wife needs a moment to herself she is where she will be most comfortable and have complete privacy. Everything that I am or was is in our home. I never lived.........in a funeral home. I lived in our home and the visitors are welcome to wander around and enjoy all the things I did.

When as 14 I helped my dad bury a man I cut fence rows for. The asked why he was being buried the day after he died no funeral or embalming just a pine box the built himself. His Daughter told WHEN me her Dad always said if no one wanted to come around and sit on the porch and talk with him when he was alive he didn't want nosey bastards coming to gauk at him in a box. I always thought that would be the same way I want it when I die.
That's a nice story and fitting. We don't have a single photo in our house on display that was posed for by a professional photographer.

I always believed the every day photos of the kids in the bathtub or birthday parties, picnics, working on or washing the car were where the memories are.

I'm sure you're the same. I learned how to manipulate photos to make masterpieces out of crap.
