RGD to lecture St Mary residents about death
The Registrar General's Department (RGD) will today host a symposium on death in St Mary.
The symposium will take place at the St Mary Parish Church Hall, Hudson Street, Port Maria.
According to the RGD, the symposium aims to educate the public on the steps involved in handling matters pertaining to death; that is, from the moment death occurs to registering the death at the RGD.
"Death is a life event of which many persons do not know the correct procedures to follow when it occurs. The RGD is aware that this information is important, and is playing a pivotal role in helping persons understand the procedures involved, thereby, making the process a less stressful one," the RGD said.
