A Tiverton cemetery has buried two men in the wrong plots, and officials are trying to broker a solution.

One family wants their loved one to stay put, while the other wants their loved one put in the grave site they picked.

In October, a 65-year-old man was placed in the wrong family plot at Pocasset Hill Cemetery.

In March, an 87-year-old man who was supposed to be buried in that plot died. He was buried in the other man's plot. His family wants him to be moved to the plot they own. The move is opposed by the 65-year-old's family.

The head of the town cemetery commission says moving them would be "ridiculous."

The town solicitor says they're working on an agreement to switch the bodies.
