Heathrow Runway 3 - A Modest proposal

The cemetery, whose leafy treescapes shielded the sheltered world of "Lucky Jim" Dixon was of course Welford Road Cemetery - initially . About 50 years ago Leicester University (12th out of 100 British universities)purchased it to expand , but could not build on it for 100 years.

According to the Burial Laws Amendment Act 1880 a person who knows the circumstances of the death and has a lawful certificate of the cause of death must first register a death with the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

You can be buried in your garden. Contrary to popular belief you do not need planning permission . A body comes within the definition of "clinical waste" and as such cannot be disposed of except under the provisions of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 and the Environment Protection Act 1990. A licensed operator is usually needed but a local authority may waive the requirement in special circumstances.

See "Green Burial" by JB Bradfield and published by the Natural Death Centre. Chapter 4

Apparently the Home Office would require certificate of Exhumation to remove the body - which living relatives would need to agree to.

As the objectors to Runway 3 are buying up small plots of land to halt the progress of Heathrow Runway 3 ( an objective which will most likely be disallowed under recent planning law changes about "vexatious litigation" etc.,) - perhaps people with terminal illnesses could buy up lots with the stated intention of such a burial.
