Mandatory Cremation

The Government does not get to decide what we do with our loved ones. Period!

Mandatory cremation supported

Pray tell where is there enough land to bury all? Have you been to the largest cemeteries in Ksac and surrounding urban areas recently? Using the same plot couple of times is a short term solution. In Peru in some places they are buried above ground. caskets stacked on top of each other like in a cabinet drawer and family pay a fee to keep it there. I don’t see the politicians supporting it if most Jamaicans are not for it..
I already told my family cremation. They can bury the urn or do whatever. It doesn’t matter to me. I am no longer on the earth plain...

This is a democratic country

The insurance companies should be against this too.
