Letter: Town as whole has many active cemeteries
File photo.

Dear editor:

I read with some interest the Dec. 12 article, “Town’s online burial map lets you search cemetery plots.”

This new map is a great resource, however, the author states in the article that the Lakeshore cemetery is the only active burial ground in town.  

I hasten to correct this statement but I know for certain that St. Mark’s, St. Vincent and St. Andrew’s all have active cemeteries. It is possible that you would consider St. Davids and Willowbank “active.”

St. Mark’s Cemetery

Editor’s note: Mr. Combe makes an excellent point. Our story should have pointed out that Lakeshore is the only active cemetery that is operated by the Town of NOTL.
