Urgent Need for New Burial Sites as Existing Cemeteries Reach Capacity

There is an urgent need for new burial sites as cemeteries across the region approach full capacity.

Chief Health Inspector Sharon Martin highlighted the issue, noting that many cemeteries are running out of space, with some able to accommodate only a few more burials.

The problem is exacerbated by the high number of weekly burials, with Lambert Cemetery alone seeing around ten burials per week.

Communities and churches are strictly enforcing burial rights, only permitting burials of residents in their designated plots. This practice has led to conflicts and further reduced available burial spaces.

During a recent post-cabinet briefing, Ambassador Lionel Hurst from the Prime Minister’s office acknowledged the issue, indicating that the new Tolton Cemetery is nearing readiness. However, delays in its opening have put additional strain on existing sites.

Martin emphasized the need for swift government action to establish new burial sites and ensure that communities have adequate space for their deceased loved ones.

  1. Did Mr. Hurst ever give an estimated amount of how many graves can the new cemetery on Sir Sidney Walling Highway hold?

  2. Or even if that didn’t work, we can see that
    Freetownson’s address is anu268 and some weeks ago we could see the email address for another regular commenter

  3. It appears the work at Tomilson’s has come to a screeching halt. There are rumors that the XPZ owners are objecting to the cemetery location.
    Look, this government is so compromised and on bed with businesses, it renders then ineffective. Never forget the DAWG doesn’t want to upset the apple cart ”
    Besides, that location is not only inadequate, but to hear the delusional Pixie speak of administrative buildings and parking lot, explains the blatant incompetence of this government.

  4. Here’s a suggestion, why not destroy, empty, dig up all those graveyards that house our colonizers. How is it, after 400 years of slavery, I don’t know of one grave around, with a Blackman’s tomb. I may be wrong, so someone please enlighten me.
