Can’t find the grave of a loved one? Help is just a click away.
The Manila North Cemetery, the biggest final resting spot in Metro Manila, has installed a computerized system of grave location to help people who can’t remember the location of the tomb of their dearly departed.
Cemetery administrator Rafael Mendez said that the new technology will help those who are confused about the exact site of their loved ones.
One only has to go to the office, give the complete name of the deceased and presto, the staff manning the computer will give the lot number and location where the deceased is buried.
Aside from the computerization of grave location, Mendez also said that 7,000 grave apartments along A. Bonifacio were repainted, four closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras were installed around the cemetery and two new comfort rooms were built.
Mendez also said that City Hall will demolish some parts of the cemetery where unauthorized people pass through or stay, particularly the farthest end, along Tagaytay Street, where a staircase provides entry to illegal cemetery dwellers and other unauthorized people.
Mendez called on the people not to bring in deadly weapons like guns and knives, playing cards and alcohol.
