Exhumations

Why Do Exhumations Occur?

Exhumations occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • movement from the original grave to a subsequently acquired family plot in the same or other cemetery
  • repatriation overseas - to be buried along with other family
  • transfer from one cemetery scheduled for development to another
  • court orders requiring further forensic examination
