Wrexham Cemetery has, as expected, gravestones written on them in Welsh, but what seemed unusual to me is that some gravestones had the addresses of where the people used to live before they died written on them. More information than I expected. This made me wonder if graves of the future will use technology to allow more information to be stored on them.

The National University of Singapore has a one day seminar on Afterlife and Death in a Digital Age in April: “As emergent technologies increasingly pervade people’s lives they are also increasingly a part of dying and of hopes and illusions of immortality and possible afterlife.”
