I quite agree that it's the subtle attempt to get into contact with still living family members or relatives.Same here.
Unless the family was wealthy enough to by an "eternal permit"
The latter doesn't exist anymore since decades ago. I have no idea what's being done with the graves that originally got the eternal permit.
To be honest, the message is somewhat more subtle: the family is asked to contact the city council.
The contract can always be renewed. What is mostly done when there are still close relatives alive.
Definitely agree.I quite agree that it's the subtle attempt to get into contact with still living family members or relatives.
But someone who leaves the grave in such a state shows that has lost any interest in the body lying here.
