Inappropriate Headstones
 
# 1 : Wednesday 23-10-2013 @ 13:45
 
 
An army veteran in the US had their headstone removed (SpongeBob square pants...which had been preapproved by the graveyard)

But there is also an on-going issue in Irish cemeteries regarding "ostentatious" traveller headstones, some being almost 1 storey high, dwarfing other memorials in graveyards

Whats your opinion on what memorials are appropriate in graveyards

Everyone should be cremated then the family can keep the ashes in as big and fancy an urn as they want in their own home.

Its another religious impediment question isn't it. I personally don't see the need for religious iconography. And who are they to be prattling on about poor taste with they plastic Jesi and fluorescent Virgins. I think it is awful for that mans family that their way of celebrating his life was blocked by the church.

Let them have what they want, within reason.. as in the usual bad taste filters we have in place for everything that doesn't revolve around the church.

That's Spike Milligan's gag. He was saying it for years before he died. And it is on his gravestone, in Irish I believe.

I was interviewing an undertaker earlier today (as one does) and the vast majority of people he has dealt with who are cremated also get buried, which he thinks is redundant.

I like the chaotic headstones of a traditional Irish graveyard, it gives it a bit of life for want of a better word. I have been to many graveyards of many religions, the Quakers are extremely organised but so boring, a lot of the American ones I have been to (mostly East Coast) don't have headstones per-say, but plaques on the ground, which is also weird.

If you go to Southern States you will find most graveyards have above ground vaults, like individual mausoleums.
This is because they are in flood plains, areas which flood most every year. Without the vault the coffins surface in the flooding and start floating around.

My uncle was cremated in london, and his ashes were placed in a hole in the ground and a rose was placed on top, (From death there comes life)this was in a field beside the church. They had a gardener and the whole field was covered in roses, all different colours and smells, it was very peaceful, they also had benches all around.
