Nedre Eiker kirkegård

For the first time in ages, I have gone with my grandmother to the cemetery to plant flowers on the graves of her and my grandfather's parents. When I was there I thought a bit about what happens when there is not room for more graves. A few days later, when I read the local newspaper, I noticed an article about this: the long-term problem of space in the two cemeteries in Nedre Eiker. In cooperation with Statistics Norway (to calculate statistics on mortality) and politicians (who allocate money), the municipality have already begun to plan the acquisition of land that can be graveyards in a few years.
