Permit for Crematorium at Virgin Islands Self-Storage Facility on Hold

A permit application to operate a crematorium at a self-storage facility in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands has been put on hold.

The proposed crematorium would occupy two self-storage units in the southernmost buildings of Fortress Self Storage Warehouse. The owner of Davis Funeral Home requested the postponement so he can gather more information.

St. Thomas currently doesnt have an operating crematorium, forcing residents to travel to Puerto Rico for the service. The proposed crematorium would house a propane-fired chamber heated to at least 1,800 degrees.

The funeral home owner has been met with some opposition from other renters at Fortress Self Storage Warehouse. The facility has a number of tenants including a dance instructor, a bakery, two salons and others.
