Smile - it makes everything better

Posted Wed 23 Oct 2013

Well I've returned from my holiday in Cyprus where it was lovely and warm to the wind and rain of Northern England.

A quarter of the cemeteries in England will be full within the next ten years, and nearly half of them will run out of space within 20 years. In some areas the problem is so severe that local councils are having to dig up pathways and car parks to find space.
