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.
