Cremated remains of 90 unclaimed bodies at Lancaster's morgue to be buried in single grave

The coroner's office is interring the cremains it has had in storage the longest and keeps those of more recent deaths on hand in case relatives come forward. A complete list of the county's unclaimed cremains is available online here: 

The remains will be buried at 1 p.m. Oct. 12 at Millersville Mennonite Cemetery, 435 Manor Ave. The service is open to the public. The cemetery donated the burial plot; one vault was donated to the county and a second was provided at a discount. Several funeral homes provide cremation services for the county and generally do so at discounted rates, Diamantoni said.

Relatives who want to claim the cremains of a person can contact the coroner's office at 717-735-2123.
