From Mr Robert Vincent

Sir: If we are to embrace "dead people's rights", then we must reach beyond the funeral and internment.

How often has one seen toppled tombstones and subsided sepulchres whose inscriptions faintly proclaim that those within will "never be forgotten"? This disgraceful state of affairs could be overcome by obliging those ordering the stonework to set up a trust fund which would ensure that this optimistic sentiment is sustained as part of such "rights".

Yours faithfully,

Robert Vincent

Wildhern,

Hampshire
