The Look Out Cemetery constructed and consecrated on 2.7 acres of land was officially opened on January 16,this year. It was the burial site to receive its first body on February 17.

The body of a late former Environmentalist, Noel Galloway, better known as “Eyes’ was laid to rest at the recently opened burial site.

The burial site allows for the traditional earth-dug graves and also includes 60 concrete crypts, still being constructed, with each being able to accommodate two bodies.

At the dedication of the site, in January, Minister of Health the Hon. Colin Riley Riley said the site should be able to accommodate burials over approximately 30, based on the Ministry’s projections for bereavements.

A Chapel and Public convenience buildings are still to be constructed at the Look Out Public Cemetery.

Meanwhile the Roman Catholic Church is still waiting for confirmation that it can use its cemetery on the church property at the Lookout entrance where the parish church was built a few years ago. The Government recently conducted public discussions aimed primarily at the neighbours at Lookout regarding the location of a cemetery at the church site.
