As the dead pile up in the country in the Morgues across more and more the cremation alternative is being considered. Medical Examiner(s) and Coroner(s) are considering taking this action across the United States.
As City’s scramble toward creativity in raising cash, cremation of the indigent is being considered over burial.
The latest story on this comes from Toledo, Ohio.
With some of Toledo’s city-owned cemeteries filling up and its finances quickly dwindling, the Bell administration Tuesday plans to propose cremating dead indigent people rather than burying their bodies.
Dennis Garvin, the city’s commissioner of parks and forestry, said the change would save money.
“It’s not a new idea and it is something that had been bandied about and first proposed by the cemetery commission 12 years ago,” Mr. Garvin said. “What happened since then is the cemetery is pretty well filled up.”
