“Crematorium,” solution to Boracay’s cemetery problem

A “Crematory in Boracay,” this would be the solution to the nearly packed cemetery in the island, particularly at Barangay Manoc-manoc.

This has been one of the topics discussed at the SB session last Tuesday, when SB Member Dante Pagsugiron brought up the problem about the Manoc-manoc Cemetery, where in it is almost full to capacity and has no available area for possible transfers.

Aside from that of Manoc-manoc, the SB had also observed that the same happens to the Balabag cemetery which has a rather small area.

One of the cited dilemmas is that the area appears to be utilized with no certain arrangement, causing niches or tombs to be placed in a seemingly scattered manner, thereby causing confusion to the public as to where to pass for instance.

In line with this, SB Member Esel Flores suggested that the council consider the proposition of a “Crematory in the island or Malay” more so that this is already accepted by the society.

This, he added is the only solution he sees for the problems with the cemeteries in Boracay.
