But that's not why some funeral homes and cemeteries in Moscow, Russia plan to set up Wi-Fi access to the internet. The funeral homes want to make it easier for people to locate their loved ones while navigating cemeteries. UPI reports:
Artem Ekimov of Ritual funeral home in Moscow explained that Internet access can make certain needs, such as navigating the funeral grounds, easier.
"Online every person interested in the identity of the buried or the monument of his grave will be able to obtain the necessary information in the network," he said. "In addition, the internet will allow you to download a map of the cemetery."
Cemeteries in Novodevichy and Vagankovskoye had previously been equipped with terminals that allowed visitors to search for the GPS coordinates of certain graves.
