Outrage in Norway as hundreds of gravestones are covered in BLACK BAGS with a demand for payment

Outrage in Norway as hundreds of gravestones are covered in BLACK BAGS with a demand for payment
This is shameful. This is very shameful. Read the full details at Outrage in Norway as hundreds of gravestones are covered in BLACK BAGS at cemetery along with a demand for overdue rental payment


  • Around 670 headstones have been labelled at Mollendal cemetery in Bergen
  • Government covers initial maintenance cost and rental - 25 years for a coffin; 20 years for an urn
  • After that, relatives must pay annual cost: £52 for a coffin; £37 for an urn

Hmmm. That could add up to quite an expense for some families. What's next? Knock down the headstones, dig up the bodies/coffins and pop them into a mass grave? Weird. There must be a better solution to this issue...

Celia - yes and what happens to the graves when no descendants can be found???

It's really a bad way of doing business
