One former resident chronicled these in a recent blog post.

Angela Quintal, a Newcastillian now living abroad in Manhattan, New York, shared her experience visiting Roy Point Cemetery on a return visit home in January.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of her father’s death.

She visited her father’s grave and described herself as horrified at the state of the cemetery.
