Is 6 feet under a cliché or a requirement? + other grave questions.

When a body is buried in a cemetery is it usually at a depth of six feet?

Would this vary in graves with multiple bodies?

What is the procedure for adding a body to an already used grave?

For your first question, see this SDSAB staff report.

In reviewing that Staff Report, I note that the link entitled “Canadian Burial Law” actually takes you to the Quebec statute referred to in the Report. Since that statute only applies in Quebec, the link should say “Quebec Burial Law.”
