Reburying The Dead - 15 Sep 2014 
If a lease on a grave has expired or not been paid, grave cleaners will break open the crypts to remove and rebury the bodies. Any remains that have not been claimed are packed into plastic bags, labeled and stored in mass graves. The remains that are claimed by family members are stored in a small box and then deposited at an ossuary at the General Cemetery.
