Tranquility Park Cemetery Nears Completion


The new Tranquility Park Cemetery at Tomlinson’s is expected to be ready for burials within three weeks, provided the weather cooperates and no logistical issues arise. Health Minister Sir Molwyn Joseph highlighted the urgency due to the dwindling space at St. John’s Public Cemetery and others across the community.

“We are under severe pressure with burial sites running out in Antigua and Barbuda. Heavy rains delayed our initial timeline, but with favorable conditions, we anticipate opening in two to three weeks,” Joseph stated in a state media interview.

The Works Ministry is working diligently to ensure the cemetery’s readiness.

The 20-acre site will be meticulously organized to optimize space, avoiding the overcrowded appearance of the current St. John’s Cemetery.

“We’re implementing regulations on grave sizes and spacing, and considering adjustments due to limited space.

Technology will play a key role in precisely locating graves, with GPS and software to help families find their loved ones easily,” Joseph explained.
