Great panic has stricken several persons after the coffins of a buried woman and her daughter appeared outside the grave which they were both buried in.

The development might have been  caused by the depth of the grave which according to reports, was not deep enough to have contained the two deceased.

The coffin of the late woman’s daughter, Angela which was buried on top of her mum’s was only covered by around a foot of soil at St Nicholas churchyard at Codsall, London as the mum  coffin had not been buried deep enough.

Brenda Owen’s coffin began to resurface as soil settled in the grave, according to Birmingham Mail.

A judge from the Church of England’s Consistory Court and chancellor of the Diocese of Lichfield, Stephen Eyre has approved that the corpses be exhumed and reburied.

 He said, “Understandably this has been deeply distressing for her family, even though as a temporary measure the coffin has been covered by further soil.“It would be perfectly practicable to remove Angela Owen’s coffin while leaving that of Brenda Owen in place.

“Despite those considerations I am satisfied that special circumstances justifying exhumation are present in the case of Brenda Owen.

“In the circumstances, to allow the exhumation of Angela’s remains while refusing to permit the exhumation of those of Brenda would be to bring about the splitting up of an existing family grave.”

It was learnt that the deceased woman was buried in July 2012, while her daughter was buried in March 2013.

So the family of the deceased duo have pleaded with the Chancellor to restraint people from using the plot of land where they were buried remained unused.

Although he is contemplating restraining people from using the land for a period of two years.
