According to a statement by Barbados Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Maxine McClean, a service will be held at the Kensington Oval, following a musical prelude commencing at 9:00am.
The funeral convoy will then make its way to the graveyard of the St. John Parish Church where the late Prime Minister will be laid to rest.
“Kensington Oval has been selected because thousands of Barbadians have expressed their desire to participate in the state funeral,” McClean disclosed, before outlining that entry to both sites would be by ticket only.
McClean stated there will be five days for the public to view the late Leader’s body, starting Thursday 28th October at 10:00am.
On November 2nd, the late Prime Minister’s body will return to Parliament for the final day of viewing.
The Barbados Government will be requested that businesses provide adequate time for their employees to view the body and attend the funeral service.
