Wales could soon run out of space to bury its dead, the Church in Wales has warned.
A number of cemeteries have run out of plots, with some closed to new burials, while others have just years left until they are full.
Alex Glanville, from the Church in Wales, said people could no longer take for granted that they would be buried in their communities.
On Thursday, Cardiff council’s cabinet agreed to spend £3m on a new cemetery.
Councillors approved plans for a new 12.5 acre cemetery about 650 metres from the existing Thornhill Cemetery.
The authority said it would provide burial space for the next 35-40 years.
