Exhuming to avoid mixed burial


According to Rav Moshe Feinstein in this responsum, popular practice is to bury men beside men and women beside women, other than in the case of a husband and wife. Therefore, where a man and woman who were not married to each other were accidentally buried side-by-side, the second one buried there should be exhumed and moved.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:241)
