You're in good company, Richard 111 was buried under a car park.
when Richard III was  reburied   in Leicester Cathedral, his hearse was  drawn through the streets by 4 black horses. On  facebook was a cartoon showing a voice coming from the coffin  "Typical.. you wait over  500 years  for a horse then 4 turn up at once!"

Thanks for sharing this Jed - very funny joke!

They are about to start work on a second International Airport for Sydney, New South Wales,  They have been arguing about whether one is needed and where to built it for over twenty years.
It has all been finally agreed but first they have to move the bodies in graves from cemeteries which will be under one of the runways.  There are I believe about 40 graves to be relocated.
7 graves from the Shadlow family, early settlers in the area, have already been moved.  The family were involved. There was a service and it has all been paid for by the government.  The others will also be moved.  They are trying to find the families for the other people buried in the cemeteries.
