Go for it, I think it would be nice to put some roses in on top of your Dads casket.

I think that's a lovely idea.

Sounds a lovely idea.

Just a wee note, in my experience you never actually see the caskets below in the open grave.

Sounds nice.

That sounds lovely, do it if it will help you to get over losing your DF.

I read your other thread and feel bad for you about what you're going through. It's truly awful.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with laying the roses for your Dad. And after the way your sister and Mother have behaved screw what anyone else thinks quite frankly.

Yes do it, it's a lovely gesture to your Dad.

If it helps, my nan was buried in the same grave as my grandad. There was nothing to be seen of his remains or coffin.

My fil was buried in same plot as his son (eldest son died aged 10). You really wouldn't have known from looking (though obv we all knew).

That would be a lovely thing to do.

You aren't going to see the first coffin. Its really quite commonplace to have three plots within one in some cemetaries.

DHs nan was buried in the same plot as her husband, you really wouldn't have known
