    This week's New Scientist -does anyone have a subscription to read the rest of the article?

    "In an out-of-the-way corner of a cemetery in east London, the graves are being dug up. Bodies are lifted out of their coffins, placed in hessian bags and lowered into a communal grave nearby. Once full - it can take 80 corpses - it will be covered over and a new one opened... If this popular graveyard is to remain open, the only solution is to use old plots. So they are unearthing bodies at the rate of about 10 per week. So far, over 300 have been moved, and another 1000 graves are earmarked for reuse "
