Looking for kin’s grave? Try this site

THE Manila North and Manila South Cemeteries have created websites to allow families to quickly locate the graves of their departed on All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day this November.

More than two-million people will be visiting the two cemeteries on those two days, and one of their problems is locating the graves of their loved ones.

To help solve that problem, the City of Manila created the websites and that point to the location of the graves.

All one has to do is go to the websites, type the names, dates, sections, lots  or  graves of their departed and then click.

The data will then be shown on screen.

Aside from the websites, the management of  Manila City Government’s two cemeteries are expediting the preparations for All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.

In the Manila South Cemetery, five new toilets have been built aside from several portalets that have been placed there.

Several staff members of the two cemeteries and family members are also cleaning up the graves of their departed, and the cleaning is allowed until Oct. 30.

In the Manila North Cemetery, the roads inside leading to the graves have been fixed. 

Private cars will be banned inside the cemetery starting on Oct. 29 until Nov. 2 because of the large number of visitors on those days.

Officials are urging that parents  make name tags for their children so they can be located right away if they get lost.

Starting Oct. 31 until Nov. 2, the Manila North Cemetery and Manila South Cemetery will be open 24 hours a day.
