Redevelopment Program Reorganization of Public Cemeteries
Identification is now by appointment
As part of the Saint-Martin public cemeteries redevelopment program, the Community has put in place a process to identify family tombs and vaults. The community asked the citizens who had buried the deceased in the public cemeteries to identify their burials. Throughout the summer, community officers received these people directly on site. From Monday 1er September, it is by appointment that these formalities can be carried out.
The Community has undertaken considerable work to reorganize the layout of all the public cemeteries in the French part. The first identification phase concerned the Marigot cemetery, from 15 July 2014 to 29 August 2014. This cemetery contains more 1000 graves, many of which are abandoned, so the rehabilitation will be long and tedious. The citizens who had buried one or more of the deceased in Marigot Cemetery were invited to visit the place where they were received by the funeral service. During the month of July, the agents assigned to this task received a dozen people a day come to carry out this formality.
From the September 1er, identification will now be by appointment. The Funeral Service invites those wishing to proceed to the identification of their deceased in the cemeteries of Marigot, Grand Case and Orleans District, to contact the 0590 87 61 51 No., in order to make an appointment. It is also possible to do this by email by asking for an appointment at: email@example.com
At the time of the appointment, citizens are requested to bring with them an identity document, a death certificate, a burial permit or any document proving the date of burial.
The Community of Saint-Martin thanks you for your understanding.
