Burial following Muslim culture
A dedicated Islamic burial area has been created at the GMP where graves are laid out facing towards Mecca.
Burials take place without a coffin by placing the body in a grave in a shroud. However, the body is brought into the Cemetery in a coffin or such receptacle that complies with that of a coffin as per the Cemetery Act.
All Islamic burials occur within 24 hours of the person’s death.
