Re: Cemeteries

I don't know what they do with the bones if you don't pay up but there is a lease type system in Poland. I think you renew every 25 years. The churches tend to own the consecrated land and the lease money is paid to them. It seems to be completely outside normal law and under the control of the local vicar. Not sure if there are "state" cemeteries with different rules. Definitely an archaic system that needs to be sorted out.
