Up to 30 extra-large graves will be dug in a Lincolnshire cemetery, to bury people who are too big for existing plots.
Sutton Bridge and Wingland Parish Council wants to open a new three-acre grave yard next year, at a cost of £200,000.
However the planned site is set to include 'super-size' graves, which will measure 9ft by 8ft.
The plots would be close to the entrance so that undertakers don't have to carry heavy coffins far.
Parish councillor Vicky Hills told media: "They will cost more money because we are going to have double plots.
‘It’s the result of people not being responsible for their weight, basically."
‘It was requested by the funeral directors that they should not be too far from the road so they don’t have too far to carry them."
If the plans go ahead, the new burial ground will be situated a mile away from the current cemetery at St Matthew’s Church in Sutton Bridge.
A planning application is due to be submitted to South Holland District Council.
