FWIW’s Irish correspondent sends along this story, with the proposed slug, “Dig we Must”. But not across the pond, apparently. “House for sale comes with bonus: previous owners buried in the back yard.”

A property has come up for sale which but has a bizarre hidden feature – the previous owners are buried in the back garden.

The four-bedroom house in Teddington in London is listed for an attractive £650,000 but many will be put off by the ‘added housemates.’

According to the Curchods listing: “It is important to note that the previous owners last wishes were to be buried in this garden, which is where both currently rest.”

We are getting a lot of interest in this property since it came to the market a few days ago,” says Curchods’ Graeme Wadhams.

“Upon finding out about the ‘bodies in the garden’  the majority of people we speak to don’t seem to have a problem with it.

“Some have even commented ‘it must have been a happy home for the previous owners to want to be buried there’ so would happily entertain living their [sic] too.”
