Apropos limited and dwindling cemeterial real estate-- stacking caskets say, 10 deep in a single grave saves space and deters would-be graverobbers, at least from coffins level [-2] - [-10].

All funerals held on a particular day at a particular graveyard could share a single tomb. The individual sarcophagi need only be separated by a few inches to a foot or so of earth apiece; John Doe might be 6 feet under, while Mary Smith is 60. May they jointly rest in multi-level peace!

       how would you propose that each interred (sp?) be recoginized? individual head stones seem an unlikely choice given the clutter that would result.

       I've already thought of it. Just like this: [link].

       Who would have thought Bentley have such a scruffy directory board in their building.   

       Did you specify under-ground just to avoid the 'baked' calls?

       No -- it was so I could put a golf course on the land, and those towering catacombs really break up the green.

       Golf course? Why didn't you just start your idea with that?. [+]
