"Find A Grave believes everyone deserves to be remembered equally and have built the site to support common alternative dispositions to traditional burial."
Burial locations in the Netherlands are in most cases temporary due to lot rentals. When the lease expires, the bodies are often removed to a mass grave in another location.
