Re: Frederick Douglass Cemetery in Staten Island,

Hello I am just curious to know how many feet should a casket be under the ground when burried. I was at a funeral recently at Fredrick Douglas Memoral gardens on Staten Island. I was appauled to see that the person was being burrid in a grave which already had two caskets in it. This was the third one going in. The thing about it was that this casket was not even 2 feet under the earth. is that the way it is going to stay? I would hope that the cemetery would put more earth over it. I was not impressed by what I saw.Disappointed in services rendered. Curious
