My granddaughter, via an undertaker, arranged for her unborn

This answer was rated:

My granddaughter, via an undertaker, arranged for her unborn baby remains to be interred at the side of my husbands, and what would be, my grave in the local churchyard.
The undertakers actually opened the grave at the front of the headstone which was distressing but we all felt it unseemly to halt the little service at the graveside.
Surely I should have been asked permission before opening the grave?
Is this something you can answer?

Sorry to hear this.

If you are the owner of the grave and have deeds to confirm this, yes, your permission should have been sought before the grave was opened.

You may lodge a complaint with the undertakers about this and ask them for an explanation why they did not seek your permission before opening the grave.

Can I help further?
