Manila north cemetery officials warned visitors against prohibited items such as sharp or bladed objects, animals, flammable stuff, sound systems, and playing cards during the Undas celebration.
Administrator Daniel Tan said visitors have started flocking to one of the city’s oldest cemeteries since Saturday to avoid the rush expected on the weekend.
To avoid confusion in finding the tomb of their departed loved ones, Tan said visitors may check the Manila North cemetery’s website atwww.manilanorthcemetery.net that holds a database of its occupants including lot number and grave number.
However, he said only those who have been buried since 1980 have been included in the database. Those who cannot be found in the database may proceed to the administration office for assistance.
“We are asking parents to keep watch over their children to prevent them from getting lost in the thick crowd. At the gate of the Manila North cemetery, we will be implementing an ID system for kids so they would have the proper identification if ever they get lost inside,” Tan said.
