The incineration and burial in landfill of unclaimed, unidentified body parts happens a lot more than people realise.
Hospitals do it, and those body are actually identified, since the hospital is the one that cut them off. Bear in mind that body parts are technically
bio-hazardous waste, they have to be disposed of safely, and the safest way to dispose of them actually is incineration.
Once incinerated, all that remains is bone (which is usually fed into a grinder), and ash.
What, in your opinion, would be the best way to dispose of this bone and ash? Given that they are unidentified, they can't be put into coffins and
given burials. Think about it, they would have to give each individual body part its own coffin and its own burial plot, as they don't know what
parts, if any, came from the same body. I suppose they could DNA test the tissues to figure that out, but that'd be hellishly expensive.
They could scatter the ash and bone on some kind of memorial garden I guess, but like it or not, those body parts have to be disposed of.
So, what do you consider to be a practical, safe, reasonable and respectful way of disposing of the body parts?
