The death of a loved one is a difficult and stressful time. We at the M&CC will try to make the process for burial as smooth as possible.
The cemetery section is the end point in “Cradle to Grave” support services provided by the M&CC to the citizens of Georgetown. The cemetery section of the city engineering department is responsible for the maintenance of the cemetery and in the event of a death, we will do the following:
- Provide facility for burial at the cemetery located at Le Repentir.
- Digging of the grave
- Grave allocation: ensuring that the deceased is buried at the designated spot.
The process flow for burial is depicted below:
The payment for the grave spot allocation is done at the treasury. Burial can be undertaken only on production of the receipt to show that payment has been made. The fees for burial can be found in the table below:
|Type of Burial/Burial Service||Cost ($)|

In addition, we also offer a grave identification service where we will help to identify the spot at which a particular person has been buried. This is required when loved ones come to visit the cemetery they can be led the exact spot.
