Support for 'grand strategic vision of green burial spaces' in South Holland to solve cemetery space shortage

Could "green burial places", surrounded by trees, bushes and flowers, be the way forward in towns and villages across South Holland?

Church and civic leaders across the area have given their views on the idea from a public health academic who has recommended the biggest shake-up in how public cemeteries are run for 170 years.

Professor John Ashton, in an article for the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, put forward a "grand strategic vision for green burial places" which could see graveyards set up alongside motorways and within an area covered with trees, bushes and flowers.
