Margaret Miller, of Dundas Road, North Berwick, passed away last Monday, aged 88, having paid her local Co-operative Funeralcare branch two-and-half years ago to be buried in the same grave plot as her parents, Andrew and Margaret Miller, in council-owned North Berwick Cemetery.

However, following her death, her relatives were told by Co-op staff that East Lothian Council had ruled there was no space in the lair for a third burial and Margaret was allocated a new plot in the recently opened extension of the cemetery.

But her family were determined that the pensioner’s final resting place would not be in the new section of the cemetery, branded “inappropriate” by Margaret’s nephew Kenneth Miller, and took the last-minute decision last Thursday not to go ahead with her burial – scheduled to take place the next day.
