LACONIA, N.H. — A man has sued a New Hampshire cemetery after discovering that someone else is buried in his plot.

Kenneth Dame bought the plot for himself and his wife at Bayside Cemetery in Laconia in 1987.

Because of an administrative error, Michael Girardi, who died last year, is buried next to 11 members of the Dame family.

Girardi’s family has not given permission to have him reburied at a different plot.

Dame’s lawsuit says he was offered another double plot, but it’s 60 feet away. His lawyer said that the proposed solution “is much too far for him to agree to.”
