The Cabinet agreed that it is necessary to amend the law governing burials in order to allow for cremation in Antigua and Barbuda.
A crematory was incorporated in the plan for the new cemetery; however, one of the funeral homes in Antigua has made an application for permission to operate a crematory.
The Cabinet is of the view that a single crematory is sufficient for Antigua and Barbuda given its population size and the demand for that kind of service.
Hence, a Public Private Partnership in the establishment of such a venture may be the way to go. More discussions and decisions are to follow.
