SCHOOL governors are objecting to a fresh bid for a `green cemetery' in Huddersfield.
They claim it would be "unpleasant" for pupils to see the burials near St Patrick's Catholic Primary School, Birkby.
Kirklees Council has also received a further 10 objections from local people to the proposals for land that could hold up to 4,000 plots on the five-acre meadow.
There would be about 100 burials a year, with bodies interred in simple shrouds and laid to rest in areas without headstones.
Businessman Michael Brook has made three previous planning applications for a burial ground in the grounds of his home, Rose Hill, at Birkby Hall Road in Birkby.
Now he is hoping for success after promising that the proposed entry will be from Birkby Hall Road rather than George Street.
Highways officials have already said they have no objections to the changed access.
Kirklees councillors are due to decide on the site when the area's planning committee meets tomorrow.
Opponents claim that burials would be disturbing and distressing for children.
And they add the new entry would be just as bad as from George Avenue.
Mr Brook has previously claimed there was "massive interest" in a green burial ground.
Comments on his plan are still awaited from English Heritage.
Their view is crucial because Mr Brook's home is a grade two listed building.
