A £1.2million extension has officially been unveiled at Kernan Cemetery in Portadown.
Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon councillor Julie Flaherty has officially unveiled the £1.2m Kernan Cemetery extension, which it is estimated will cater for local burial requirements for the next 20-30 years.
The Lord Mayor commented: “I am pleased that our Council has been able to extend Kernan Cemetery for use into the future.
“It is a peaceful and tranquil setting which I hope will be appreciated by bereaved families and friends when they visit.”
The lawn section contains 1,764 grave plots and the surround section contains 462 grave plots, both of which will be ready to use in late 2019.
The design includes areas for 256 infant burial plots and 128 ashes burial chambers, which are already open for public use.
Work on the £1.2m extension began in March 2017 as part of the first phase of plans for Kernan Cemetery, and there is space available for another two phases of future extensions.
