United Kingdom,Human Interest/Society,Lifestyle/Fashion, Sun, 22 Apr 2012 IANS

London, April 22 (IANS) A man in Britain has purchased a tiny island to ensure he and his wife have their final resting place.


Piers Casimir-Mrowczynski, 50, snapped up the tiny Mackenzie Island, near the isle of Islay, to be his final resting place, the Daily Mail reported.


Head of Information Communications Technology (ICT) at Beechwood Park boarding school in St. Albans, Hertfordshire county, he purchased the uninhabited island for 55,000 pounds (over $88,000) this week.


Casimir-Mrowczynski said he was drawn to the idea when he was diagnosed with cancer of the appendix three years ago. Now he and wife Pauline, 50, plan to be buried there when they die.


"About three years ago I had cancer of the appendix. That was a really hard time...The cancer battle got me thinking about where I wanted to be laid to rest, when my time comes, and this island just seemed perfect," said Casimir-Mrowczynski.


"We plan for our children to be involved in it, once we die, and it will be held in a trust. We hope to keep it for all time, as it is now," he added.
