Campbell Mulholland, 94, expected he would be buried with his wife and baby son in a grave plot he bought in 1967. But legislation introduced in NI in 1992 dictates that his grave is 1inch too small and he must be buried alone.

We, the undersigned, ask for legislative change to allow graves bought before pre-1992 to be used as they were originally intended and reinstate the contracts. Families are only discovering their plot does not meet 1992 regulation a day before the funeral when the grave is opened - it is heart breaking and distressing.

Today instead of being laid to rest and at peace with his beloved wife Peggy and baby son Kenneth, Campbell remains in a morgue. All councils in NI bound by these rules should call for change to allow their citizens dignity in death, to be buried with their loved one, to have their final wishes adhered to. It's time for common sense and compassion. Please sign the petition and have your voice heard.
