A Dozen Graves to Pave

The Rev. Michael Wishart of St. Mary the Virgin Church in Bishops Lydeard, England, has a problem: His church's ex-parishioners are taking up too much space in the yard.

"I'm suggesting we take part of the churchyard to create a car park.

"However, this will mean we'll have to move about 12 headstones to create enough space."

Mr Wishart said most of the headstones date back to the 1800s, but the church was doing all it can to contact relatives to gain their permission to move them. [Link]
