Some cursory research on the Internet revealed this to be more common than I originally suspected. I found this article dating back to 1999 concerning the reinterment of a Bronze Age skeleton by a Church of Wales priest: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/480967.stm
Apparently it is also common for pre-christian remains not to be reinterred but kept on display in museums. So even in death our heathen ancestors are subject to an indignity not suffered by those who were adherents to the christian religion. So even in the 21st century there is still discrimination practised against non-christian remains. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/archaeology/human_remains_01.shtml
"The excavation of human remains, of whatever date, from their place of burial, is regulated by law and requires a licence from the Home Office. But even after excavation has taken place there is the question of what happens to the remains. The divide is often between Christian and non-Christian, with Christians more likely to be re-buried while prehistoric burials more often than not end up in museum storage."
My readers may remember the furore over the refusal of English Heritage to rebury the remains of a prehistoric child found at Avebury despite opposition by the Council of British Druid Orders: https://historicengland.org.uk/advice/technical-advice/archaeological-science/human-remains-advice/avebury-reburial-results/ I wonder how the perpetrators of this disgusting decision would feel about their own child being kept on display in a museum? What on earth can the public gain from such a display apart from the same morbid curiosity which the masses used to derive from a public lynching? The same thing of course happened to the remains of the Amesbury Archer.
Even when our non-christian ancestors are reburied without a christian liturgy christian clerics still manage to get a showing: http://www.honour.org.uk/reburial-at-highworth/
This general lack of respect demonstrated towards our dead ancestors by subjecting them to christian burial rites or displaying them as objects in a museum is indicative of the Kali Yuga in which we are living today
