28 What is required to facilitate additional interments in burial rights in the absence of clear estate or ownership evidence?


Upon the death of his wife in 1970, Mr John Smith purchase interment rights for two adjoining (potentially also double depth) graves.

He was later buried in the same grave as his wife. Upon his death there was no estate, apart from the then-vacant grave. His granddaughter wishes to claim the graves, so she can inter her own mother’s cremated remains in the vacant grave and then place a monument upon the two graves.

What does she need to do?
