Comhairle nan Eilean Siar intends to carry out improvement works (which had been scheduled for March) of an unused, existing area, of the lower part of Sandwick Cemetery which will provide an additional 1,200 lairs and associated access.

The work is now scheduled to begin week beginning August 3 and is expected to last for a period of 12 weeks. During the period of works the cemetery will remain open, but access and movement through certain areas of the cemetery will be restricted for the duration of the works.
