In the matter of David Bell deceased [2016] ECC She 4

This judgment should be read in conjunction with In the matter of David Bell deceased [2016] ECC She 3, which was an interim judgment, where the Chancellor requested further evidence before making a decision as to whether to allow the exhumation and cremation of the remains of the petitioner's father, who died in 1976, and the interment of those remains with the cremated remains of the petitioner's mother, who died in 2016, in a cemetery in Scotland. The Chancellor decided that there were "good and proper reason(s) which would be likely to be regarded as acceptable by right thinking members of the Church at large to allow the petition and permit this exhumation."
