This week, two bereaved people took the unusual step of burying their loved ones in their own garden. Patricia Waters, an 81-year-old from Kidderminster, buried her husband Eddie in the back garden. Meanwhile 56-year-old Philip Topham from Nottinghamshire buried his wife Catherine in the front garden.

For this to happen twice in one week is very unusual, but how common is this approach, and what does it do to the re-sale value of the house?
