Plot donated in Beckley for unclaimed cremains

BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) -- Unclaimed cremains in Beckley now have a place where they can be buried.

The estate of the late Lillian Blankenship donated a burial plot in St. Sebastian Cemetery for unclaimed cremains.

Blankenship's son, Bruce Blankenship, tells The Register-Herald that the cremains of about 300 people can be buried in the plot.

On Tuesday, the cremains of a homeless woman known only as Joyce were the first to be buried. Dozens of people attended a service for her.
