The Australian Broadcasting Corporation "Background Briefing" program ran a two part series last year entitled "Bury, burn or compost?"
"There's a boom in funerals around the corner as the Boomers face mortality, but neither cemeteries nor crematoria are eco-friendly. The business of burials is beginning to adapt, and so are their future customers. Reporter Ian Townsend."
The transcripts of the program are available online at the ABC.
Last Sunday more than 50 residents turned out on for the Leeton Family and Local History Society cemetery walk. The walk was part of Heritage Week, which started last Saturday and runs until April 19.
After reading this article I decided to google a bit to gain a bit more insight:
- The Sun News On Line (UK) has this article on Muslim burial that may interest some here, if only to confuse the issue even more for others.
- Wikipedia's entry for the Qibla is also worth a read.
Geophysical equipment will be used at the Albany Memorial Cemetery to find and mark the graves without having to dig up any soil.
Project coordinator David Guilfoyle says the cemetery was the first of its kind in WA and estimates some of the graves could date back to the mid-1800s.

Web conferencing may be used as an umbrella term for various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings. It may also be used in a more narrow sense to refer only to the peer-level web meeting context, in an attempt to disambiguate it from the other types of collaborative sessions. Terminology related to these technologies is inexact, and no generally agreed upon source or standards organization exists to provide an established usage reference.
