Same-day burial plan for Cardiff after Muslim request
By Nick Dermody
A same-day burial service is being prepared for Cardiff, aimed at meeting the cultural and religious needs of mainly Muslim and Jewish communities.
Cardiff has run a next-day burial service on request since 2004, but a survey of Muslim leaders led to calls for a same-day option.
Under Islamic law, a person must be buried as soon as possible after death. This is usually no more than 24 hours later, according to the Muslim Council for Religious and Racial Harmony in the UK, with the body having been washed and shrouded in cloth.
