(KSL News) Cemetery space is beginning to fill up in Utah.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Murray City Cemetery could be full in as little as three years, and the Salt Lake City Cemetery could reach capacity in the next decade due to a limited amount of space and a growing elderly population.

Many cemeteries are now looking at alternate burial plans, such as double-depth graves to accommodate demand.
