Something for the kids ;-) This Saturday at the Cité Biblio...
The Service Cimetières (Cemeteries Department) is in charge of maintenance (green spaces and roads) at the city's 13 municipal cemeteries, which have a total surface area of 27 hectares. 15,310 burial plots have been granted by the college of aldermen at the various municipal cemeteries to date.
The Service Cimetières provides a 24/7 hearse service to transport remains to the city's 18 municipal mortuaries, or to the Laboratoire National de Santé in Dudelange.
Gravediggers open and close the graves before and after burials. They act as pallbearers, assist during funeral services, and also assist with scattering ashes at the Merl-Belair cemetery.
